Home Library Service
We offer a free service delivering library resources to customers in their homes when they may no longer be able to visit the library.
The Home Library Service can only reach a limited number of people at any one time. So we will seek to provide the service for those people who need it most.
This means that you may be asked to wait until there is a place available at your nearest library.
