On the road again - Knox Mobile Library

The parts have turned up, the mechanics have fitted them and the Knox Mobile is on the road again. Normal services have been resumed. You can visit the Mobile in Scoresby at 3pm this afternoon.


Problems with the Knox Mobile Library

Our apologies but we are not able to put the Knox Mobile Library on the road until we have fixed a problem with its brake lights. It is at the Knox depot at the moment and we are waiting for some spare parts to be delivered. Once the mechanics give us the go ahead we will have it out and about once again.

In the meantime if you have any items to be returned they can go back to any of our other branches or you can ring us on 1300 737 277 to renew your items.
