We offer a range of library services for people who cannot get to one of our library buildings.
Home Library Service
The Home Library Service provides materials to those who are unable to use a community library due to illness, disability or frailty. The service can be permanent or temporary, for example, where someone may be recuperating from an illness or accident. Users will have access to the same range of materials as those found in a community library which will be delivered direct to the individual's home.
Visits are made on a three weekly basis and at a regular time by our staff who carry identification. This service is free of charge and requests to receive it can be made by individuals themselves, relatives, friends or carers.
Please note that the timetables may be subject to change.
Mobile Library Service
The Mobile Library visits the parts of the Borough where there is no static community library within easy reach.
The Mobile Library carries a range of materials but on a smaller scale than a community library. It operates on a three weekly schedule, visiting on a set day and time and at a designated place. Please see our 2021 timetables.
Please note that the timetables above are subject to change.
Hospital Library Services
During your stay in hospital, if you fancy a good read just look out for our volunteers who will be happy to offer you a wide selection from their trusty trolley. The trolley service is as follow:
- Surgical wards - Tuesday and Friday afternoons
- Elderly care - Wednesday mornings
