**We are currently operating our mobile service with one vehicle – this will mean that all of our mobile library customers will receive a reduced service for a temporary period.  The timetable will operate on a 4-weekly service rather than a fortnightly service whilst this is the case. There will be no service on 4th July. *You can renew your books at https://eastayrshireleisure.com/libraries/cat/ and borrow e-books and e-audio from Borrowbox using your library card.
