The latest additions to Lancashire County Council’s mobile library fleet will soon be taking to the roads.
And thanks to a public vote the three new vehicles now have wonderful puntastic names.
Very soon Great Transportations, Vroom with a View and Ride and Prejudice will be out and about making sure residents in some of the most far flung parts of the county have access to the best books.
They will join The Borrowers, Chitty Chitty Book Book and the Hardbacks of Notre Van in making sure people who do not live close to one of the council’s 64 libraries can still access all the great services they offer.
County Councillor Peter Buckley, cabinet member for community and cultural services, said: “We are so pleased to see people getting involved with the naming process. We had more than 400 votes and lots of suggestions which was great.
“The winning names are the perfect addition to the current fleet, and we once again want to thank the public for taking the time to vote and join in the fun. The vans belong to you, the residents of Lancashire so it’s only right you should have the final say.
“I’m hoping that residents will spot these new vehicles with their catchy names, and they will bring a smile to their faces. We hope that when they see the vans across Lancashire, they will take a photo and share on social media.
“We know how much the mobile library service is valued by our customers, and for some it’s a real lifeline. They provide an important facility to some of the most rural parts of Lancashire, giving people the chance to borrow, renew or order books.”
