Volunteers bring the library to your door

If you, or a friend or relative, love reading but are unable to get to the library, Wiltshire's home library service may be the solution.

The free service, which is delivered by volunteers, is available for eligible customers who have no one to visit the library for them.

A member of library staff initially visits the customer at home to talk about what they would like to read. They are then introduced to a library volunteer, who will visit every few weeks to exchange their books. There are no fines or charges.

For more information about how to access the home library service, contact your local library or call the Access and Volunteer Manager on 01225 713706. Enquiries can also be sent via email to:

A Wiltshire resident who uses the home library service said: "It's a bonus to have a friendly visitor who takes time and trouble to order suitable books. I am very pleased with the lady who brings my books and I look forward to her visits. It's nice to have a chat and she is very helpful."

Home library service volunteers receive training. If you are interested in volunteering for this role, see:
