The housebound service is a fortnightly delivery service available for users who are unable to visit either the main library or the Mobile Library, either on a permanent or a temporary basis, because of illness or infirmity and who have no other person readily available to come to the library to select their materials.
Library staff select items for the Housebound borrowers according to the preferences noted on the Housebound Borrower Registration Form.
Volunteer drivers deliver the items every second Tuesday morning.
Arrangements may be made to collect items from the Mobile Library at any regular stop.
Terms of service
You will be required to supply a referral/confirmation by a medical professional that you are incapacitated initially and every 12 months from the commencement of the Housebound service.
Normal library membership conditions apply to the loan of items to Housebound borrowers. You will be charged for the cost of any Lost items.
