Home library services
Services for people who can't get to a library
We provide a free home delivery service for books including large print and audio books.
A trained member of staff or volunteer will deliver items to match your reading tastes every 3 weeks at an agreed time.
This service is for any resident who can't visit their local library because of ill health, disability or because they are caring for someone.
How to apply
Print and complete a Home Library Service application form (PDF document) and send to the address on the form.
Application forms are also available in all our libraries.
Services for memory loss and dementia groups
We provide 'forget me not' collections containing items from social history from the 1940s to the 1970s. Handling the items and discussing them can help trigger memories and spark discussions. Forget me not boxes are available to borrow with a yearly subscription of £35.50. They come in a variety of themes. Read the Forget me not box themes (PDF Document) to find out more.
We also have a reminiscence collection consisting of:
- Memory joggers
- Specialised puzzles and quizzes
