Home library services

If you still love reading but find it difficult to get to your local library, our Home Library Service offers you the chance to-get the books that you love to read delivered straight to your door.

You can choose from a wide variety of fiction and non fiction in a range of different formats- including regular print, large print and audio books.

These will be delivered to your home on a regular basis. A Royal Voluntary Service volunteer will visit you to discuss what types of books you enjoy reading and organise a regular time to visit It's as easy as that!

Just give us a ring and we'll make an appointment to visit when it's convenient to you.

We can also show you how you can read our large selection of e-books and listen to audio books using the Explore e-Library on a tablet computer. Don't worry if you don't have a tablet computer or the internet, we can loan you one pre-loaded with e-books.


Volunteering won't just help transform the lives of people, it will change your life too. Just a couple hours of volunteering makes you feel great. You'll be amazed what effect one conversation, one laugh from someone who's spent days alone or a heartfelt thank you can have.

If you are interested in volunteering please get in touch for more information.
