Become a volunteer!

The Home Library Service could not operate without the goodwill of the many community-spirited volunteers who generously give their time each month, to choose books and other materials from our libraries and deliver them to our housebound library members. We don't overburden our volunteers with too many people to visit or inconvenience them by having to deliver outside their local area, so we are always looking for new volunteers to share the load.  If you or a friend would like to become a Home Library Service volunteer, please fill in and submit this volunteers form.
