Home Library Service


The ongoing national lockdown means that all of the county’s library buildings will be closed for general use from Thursday 5 November.

However, from Monday 9 November, customers will be able to order books and pick them up from the front entrance of their local library.

Those needing to use library computers to access essential services such as universal credit and Internet banking, will be able to do so from Monday by pre booking a session on 0345 60 80 196 or via our online form.

For more information please visit the Lockdown Response page or contact us directly.

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.
