Isuzu produces mobile library truck

The Geelong Regional Library in Surf Coast Shire, Victoria, has rolled out its innovative new mobile library fitted to an Isuzu FVD 1000 truck.

According to the Bellarine Surf Coast Shire, its 60,000 residents will have a reliable mobile library for years to come.

“A lot of towns along the Surf Coast have really poor internet,” said Community Libraries Manager at Geelong Regional Library, Russell Woodford. “Homeowners in those places aren’t getting much more than dial-up speeds and poor reception on mobile phone networks.”

Woodford added. “We’ve loaded the truck with computers, printers and scanners and it’s coped magnificently. The Isuzu’s reliability has given us all peace of mind. It was chosen through the Greater City of Geelong Council, through a tender process carried out for all the trucks.”

The FVD Series features a six-cylinder Isuzu 6HK1 engine, producing 221 kW of power at 2,400 rpm and 981 Nm of torque at 1,450 rpm. Meanwhile, the library can carry more than 5,000 books, in addition to all the other resources on board with the Isuzu FVD Series able to cater to 16,500 kg GVM.
