If you are unable to visit your local library due to temporary or permanent disability or illness, the library can come to you! Just let us know and someone from the library will visit you to evaluate your needs and find out your reading, watching or listening interests.
Our Homebound service offers two delivery options:
Library staff can select items according to your interests, and a friend or relative can pick them up from your closest library and return them for you.
Library staff can select items according to your interests, and the items will be delivered and picked up for you by Library volunteers once every four weeks on a Tuesday morning.
You can have up to 50 items a month, and use our service permanently, temporarily, occasionally, or even during hospital stays or other short-term situations that prevent you from visiting the Library in person for health and wellbeing reasons.
This service is available to those who reside in their own homes, as well as in care homes, retirement villages, rest homes, hospital wards, and hospice.
