Struggling to get out and about? The Home Library Service is for you.
Do you know someone who enjoys reading, but with the cold weather and dark evenings finds it difficult to get to the library?
The Home library Service is a free book delivery service for people who may be housebound, recovering from an illness, have mobility problems or are caring for someone. We arrange for a volunteer to visit regularly with books to match their reading tastes. The service is flexible and free. Robert Wall said “My wife would be lost without her books from the home library service.”
Please get in touch if you know anyone who may be interested in receiving the service.
