The Home Library Service (HLS) is for those people who are aged, ill, physically unable to get about, or physically unable to handle print material. If you cannot visit a library, but love to read, the library will come to you.
To apply for the Home Library Service, contact the library and ask for an application form, or download the form online. You will need a phone or written referral from your doctor, nurse, community worker, or the Canberra Blind Society.
Contact the Home Library Service by phone on 6207 5748.
Materials available to members of the Home Library Service include:
Library members can also use the library website to browse the catalogue, request items, and search a wide range of electronic resources including full-text magazines and newspapers, and downloadable audio books.
Home Library Service deliveries are made by library staff and a large team of volunteers.
If you would like to become a volunteer, phone 6207 5748 or read our volunteer policy for more information.
