Home Library Service

Do you have difficulty getting to your local library?

Is there no-one that can visit the library for you?

Are you a carer that uses the library on behalf of someone?

The Home Library service can provide you with all the materials available in our libraries right to your door.

We can provide-

  • books in regular or large print
  • books on tape or CD
  • CDs and DVDs
  • a request service
  • information and advice

Joining is easy and membership is free.

Charges apply to the loan of some materials.

Events and activities, including speaker talks, musical bingo etc are organised by the team and other partner organisations and delivered at local libraries or other venues on a regular basis. There may be a small charge for transport to these events.
