Worcestershire Library Service at Home

What does it do?

The Library Service at Home has a specially designed mobile library which delivers books, videos and audiotapes to people living in the more rural parts of Worcestershire. It carries a large stock of popular authors and we can arrange for any book not on board to be obtained on special request. Visually impaired clients have a wide range of large print and audio books to choose from.

The Housebound Service provides a library service to people living in urban areas of the county. This service is provided by most libraries in Worcestershire using staff and volunteers.

Who it is for?

All residents of Worcestershire who are unable to visit a branch or mobile library because of age, a disability or long term illness, which normally confines them to their home and have no relatives or friends who can visit a branch or mobile library on their behalf.

Where it is available?

Local service (Malvern Hills, Worcester, Wychavon, Wyre Forest, Bromsgrove, Redditch).

What it costs:
