Home library service

If you meet the following criteria you may be eligible for this service:

  • Do you have mobility difficulties in getting to your local library?
  • Are you a full-time carer whose responsibilities prevent you from visiting our libraries?
  • Let us know if you, or someone else, would benefit from this service.
  • You can either refer yourself or you can be referred by someone else.

We can then arrange a home visit at a time convenient to you, to discuss your needs, the books you like to read or listen to. The service you receive will then be tailored to suit your needs and help you discover new interests. A volunteer will visit you every three weeks with new items based on what you have told us.

You will have access to all the materials that are available in libraries. We can provide you with books in large and ordinary print, fiction or non-fiction, audio books. If we don't stock a particular book, we will make every effort to obtain it for you. If you are studying at home this service can support you.
