The Mobile Library is back!

The Richmond Tweed Regional Library Mobile Library is back on the road and visiting our region’s towns, villages, and outlying communities.

Following the destruction of the previous trailer in this year’s unprecedented floods, a replacement trailer has been received, polished, and loaded with brand-new books with thanks to donations gratefully received from local residents, and people and organisations across Australia and overseas!

Gary Dardengo, the RTRL Mobile Library Officer said, “We’re back! After a short hiatus, and after many messages of support and thanks, we’re on the road and coming to a stop near you!” The acting Regional Library Manager, Lucy Kinsley added, “We want to thank our communities across the region for their support and their patience while we worked hard to return to service. We know how popular and how well-loved the Mobile Library and its staff are, and we sincerely thank you. We’re looking forward to seeing you all.”

Keep an eye on the library website and social media for events being held across the region to celebrate the Mobile Library’s return.

You can view the searchable Mobile Library timetable on the library website at and on the library app.
