Home Library Service

Bringing the library to you

The Home Library Service delivers carefully chosen collections of books, audio books or music to anyone who is home-restricted because of age or disability (long or short term).

We visit new customers to find out what kind of books and or music they enjoy and what format of books they prefer.

This can be:

  • audio books
  • large print
  • paperback books
  • hardback books

All the services are free to the user.

The collections are delivered monthly and requests are taken for particular titles or subjects.

We also provide collections of books to care homes and sheltered housing in the borough.

These collections are changed on a regular basis.
