Home Delivery Service Volunteer
Many people are unable to get to one of our libraries because of disability, serious illness, or caring responsibilities. Our Home Delivery Volunteers can help by bringing books and audio books to people in their own homes, providing a vital service to some of the city’s most isolated residents. We would like to be able to offer this service across the whole city, so we’re looking for many more volunteers to help out. Find out more about our home delivery service.
