Community Library Service

We offer a free outreach Community Library Service for borough residents who find it difficult to visit their library. We visit individuals and groups.


We call on you once every four weeks with a box of items selected to your taste. You can choose up to 12 books or eight audio books. You can also request items without charge.

These items are also offered free:
  • talking books
  • DVDs and videos
  • language and music CDS and tapes

Residential homes or groups

We deliver books to residential homes, sheltered accommodation and day centres.

We can call every 12 weeks with up to 60 ordinary and large print books.
