Home Library Service

If you or someone you know can’t make it to the library, our Home Library Service can deliver titles to homes and care homes.

If health or mobility problems are preventing you or someone you know from visiting a library branch or mobile library, our Home Library Service volunteers are here to help.

The service is free and available from most libraries.

How it works

Our friendly volunteers will visit you in your home to discuss which books you are interested in, including audiobooks.

Tell us about your favourite authors, genres or non-fiction subjects, and our volunteers will choose a selection of books and order them from the library on your behalf. They then collect the books from the library and deliver them to your door and return any books you’ve finished.

Many titles in our catalogue are also available in Large Print and audiobook form for those who are visually impaired.

All our Home Library Service volunteers undergo an enhanced DBS check.
