The library home delivery service is provided for people who are unable to visit their library because of age, illness, or caring responsibilities. The service also is available to individuals who live in retirement homes and sheltered housing. Friends, family, helpers (for example Social Workers and Home Carers) can apply on behalf of applicants.
An initial visit to an applicant at home will explain the service and note any personal reading preferences.
Every four weeks, readers receive a visit to their homes to deliver a selection of books including large print and spoken word on CD.
We can also assist with setting up our digital services, BorrowBox (eAudiobooks and eBooks) and PressReader (eMagazines and eNewspapers). To access these services, a suitable smart phone or tablet, and an internet connection are required.
For further information, or to make an application for the library home delivery service, please telephone 01698 452143 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
