Community Bus Service

Need a lift?

The Robe Community Bus service is provided by the RSL. Each month a different driver is assigned and details can be found in the Robe Community Newsletter each month.

The bus runs every Thursday morning for local shopping, bank, post office, library etc. You will be picked up at approximately 10.30 am and returned to your home between 12.15 - 12.30 pm.

The bus also runs trips to Mount Gambier, usually occurring on the last Friday of the month. Pick up is 8.00 am and you will return to Robe at 5.30 pm. The return fare is $17.00.

Library Book Delivery Service

Staff at the Robe Public Library along with the Friends of the LIbrary are in the process of setting up a borrowing service for people who are house bound either through age, illness or injury, whether it be short or long term.

If you would like to take advantage of this service please call us at the Library and we will arrange for a member of the Friends of the Library to visit you and do a profile on your reading likes and dislikes.

Our collection consists of the following:
DVD's - Adults and children's; Audio Books both tapes and CD's also children's; Non-Fiction; Adult Fiction; Magazines; Children's Fiction and non-Fiction; Large Print Books in Adult fiction.

We are continually adding to our collection and we are networked with Naracoorte, Millicent, Penola and Bordertown and have access to their collection. Through Libraries SA we have access to the entire state for Inter Library Loans. So as you can see if we don't have what you would like to borrow, we can go further afield to get your requests.
