Using the New Mobile Library Service

When you use the Mobile Library Service you will be treated as a member of either Live Borders Libraries & Archives or Midlothian Council Library Service and will be subject to their rules and regulations. You can continue to also be a member of East Lothian Council Library Service, but items borrowed from any East Lothian Library cannot be returned to the mobile library.

If you are not an existing member and would like to use this new service, please supply one form of identification such as a driving licence, birth certificate or passport, and a document detailing your current address such as a utility bill or bank statement. You can join at the Mobile Library, one of our branches or contact East Lothian Libraries on 01620 820600 or email [email protected]
