Home Library Service

This service is available for people of any age, who may be confined to home

Get started

We work with the Royal Voluntary Service (RVS) to provide a Home Library Service. The service is available to anyone who is unable to visit their local library, specifically people who may be housebound, living in long term care, carers, or people who are vulnerable due to long term conditions or disabilities. The service is open to people of all ages.

The RVS will arrange for a volunteer to visit you to talk with you about what you like to read and they will agree appropriate times to visit you (usually fortnightly or monthly). The volunteer will then arrange to go to the library to choose your books and  deliver them to you.
