The new mobile library, which will cost£73,500, will be introduced later in the year. It will be more modern and user friendly than previous vehicles and will provide a more efficient, reliable city-wide service.
Customers will be able to make use of up to five computers on board, and enjoy a wide range of books, from adult and children's books, to spoken word audio books for the visually impaired. All issues, returns and renewals will take place via the computer system.
The vehicle will be accessible to elderly and disabled people, with a lift for wheelchairs and a kneeling suspension system, which allows the vehicle's suspension to be let down, lowering the entrance to pavement level.
It is part of the city council's vehicle replacement programme - which replaces older city council vehicles with modern ones.
Keillor Coachbuilders, a mobile library and vehicle bodybuilder, were chosen to design and build the vehicle, after the city council invited numerous companies to submit design specifications.
Executive member for resources cllr Chris Curry said: 'The introduction of the new vehicle will mark a real step forward in the library service we deliver to communities in the city.
'I am delighted that we will have a mobile library service that is modern and efficient, and which provides local people with access to computers'.
