Our Home Library Service is for anyone who is unable to use the library.  They may have a disability, long-term illness or caring responsibilities which make it difficult for them to get out. Home Library Service volunteers will bring books and other materials to your home. This is if you are not able to get into a library yourself because of restricted mobility.
