Little Hormead, Buntingford, Furneaux Pelham – just three of the villages visited by the mobile library on its fortnightly tour of East Hertfordshire. The film was commissioned by the Foreign Office, presumably, to present British society as efficient, educated and caring to audiences overseas. Librarian Sally Jenkins clearly derives much pleasure from her work, which she also regards as a hobby. In 2015, the mobile library ceases to continue its service for inhabitants of some of the remotest areas of the county. The alternative to the service is for the local communties to set up “community libraries” and volunteers to carry out a home delivery service. A sad farewell to a truly pioneering and worthwhile service.
