Home Library Services

Could you be a Home Library Service Volunteer?

We urgently need people to help us to support those who cannot get to libraries.  This is a vital service that we run in partnership with the Royal Voluntary Service in Cornwall.  It is very rewarding and involves any or all of selecting, delivering and collecting books for someone who finds it difficult to get to the library.

Some of our customers would love to have someone to bring them to the library so that they can choose for themselves, others would use our online library catalogue to select themselves.

If you think you could help and want to know more please give your name and telephone number to library staff or email: libraries@cornwall.gov.uk and we will be in touch – Thank You!

It is for anyone who is unable to use the library because they have a disability, long-term illness or caring responsibilities which make it difficult for them to get out.  Tell us the sort of books you like, and Royal Voluntary Service volunteers will deliver them to your home.  Or tell us exactly which books you would like and we will do our best to get them for you - you can browse and reserve items yourself using our online library catalogue.  You can choose from books in ordinary print or Large Print and audiobooks. 

If you or someone you know would like to use this service, contact your local library or email libraries@cornwall.gov.uk.
