Home Library Service


Currently five libraries are open, and all remaining libraries will be opening from 19 October with reduced opening hours.

Anyone visiting libraries is required to wear a face covering, unless exempt. We are not able to offer a full service and encourage people to continue to use our eLibrary if possible, so that we can manage customer numbers safely.

If you have any questions regarding the reopening of libraries, please contact us via our online form or ring our enquiries line 0345 60 80 196.

For more information on available libraries, opening times and services visit the Libraries Reopening Plan.

If you can’t get to the library due to ill-health, disability or caring responsibilities the library can come to you.

How does it work?

We can arrange for you to have your library books delivered to your home on a regular basis, at a time convenient for you.

We offer books in standard and large print and also have a wide range of audio books on CD.

This service is free.

After you have completed the enquiry form we will contact you by phone or email to assess your eligibility.

We deliver the service through our team of Home Library Service volunteers. We will match you with someone and make them aware of what you like to read, making them your link to the library.
