Telford & Wrekin Libraries has launched a new electric book delivery van.

The van is joining a fleet of 15 EV vehicles which will help to reduce the council’s emissions by around six tonnes of CO2 per year.

The EV delivery van transports requested books between the nine borough branches. This service helps residents to access the materials they want when they are not able to travel to a different branch themselves.

The Telford & Wrekin Libraries Library Service and Digital Inclusion Manager, Andrew Griffin-Woodall said: ‘We would like to thank residents for their patience as the delivery service resumes.

‘We’re really pleased to be able to reintroduce book circulation between branches in a way that is more sustainable and ecologically friendly.

‘We hope that by doing so, we can make the borough cleaner and greener while keeping our borough town communities connected by the library service.’
