If you love reading but age, disability or caring prevents you visiting the library, then let us come to you.
Who can use the service?
Library Services at Home is a free service for Birmingham residents. We deliver books and other library materials to people who find it hard to get out of their homes without help due to disability, illness, mobility or frailty. The service is also available to carers who are unable to visit their local library due to their individual circumstances.
What kind of service is offered?
A monthly supply of books can be brought directly to your door by a dedicated, trained and experienced member of library staff. Library Services at Home customers have access to the same range of materials as users of community libraries, and can reserve items free of charge.
We provide books in ordinary and large print, on cassette and CD, and in community languages. We also supply music, jigsaws, videos and much more…
