Mobile Library

The mobile library does a rural route and an urban route around the New Plymouth district. It visits schools as far north as Tongaporutu and as far south as Ratapiko.

If you live in urban New Plymouth it will stop near your place every two weeks. Check the timetables to see when it's stopping at a location near you.
