Home Library Service

Who is this for?

This service is for Buckinghamshire residents, who find it difficult to visit a library due to age, illness or disability. Carers who are unpaid are also eligible. 

How does it work?

The Home Library Service is a free monthly service delivered to your home at a suitable time for you by volunteers.

Volunteers will wear identification badges and provide a helpful and courteous service.

You will be given a card with the name of your volunteer and the name and telephone number of your Home Library Service Coordinator.
