Mobile Library Bus at Billingham Library

The Mobile Library Bus known as the 4LA is pictured outside Billingham Library on Bedale Road. This bus was the smallest vechicle in the fleet and visited places such as Staithes. When Cleveland County Libraries became no more I believe the bus was used by Hartlepool Libraries.

  1. My wife Anne used to work on the travelling library in the 1980s when Colin Quinn was the driver. They used to go to Staithes as North Yorkshire didn’t possess a vehicle capable of ascending the steep hill in the village. Other stops were Charltons and individual farms in the area.
