Library from home

There are 2 main services we offer which mean you can still enjoy the Library Service even if you are unable to visit your local library: the Library to You Service and the Sound Reads Service.

LibraryPlus Mobile Library Service withdrawn

Following the Public Consultation on the future of the Library Service and the final decision by Cabinet, the Mobile Library Service has now been withdrawn. 

Mobile Library customers have been contacted individually. 

Mobile Library customers with items still on loan can return these to any of our libraries. All overdue charges will be waived.

Any residents who would like to continue to use the Library Service, but are unable to visit their nearest library, can be considered for home delivery through our Library to You service. Please contact your nearest library for further details.

If you have any further questions relating to the Mobile Library Service, please contact NLIS Feedback at

Library to You service

How does it work?

This is a free service for customers who are unable to get to the library, either through age or disability.

  • A member of  library staff will call you to explain how the service works and to discuss your reading preferences
  • We will then select items for you according to your tastes and requirements
  • Volunteers then deliver to your home every month and will talk to you to ensure that we are selecting the right stock for you

How do I arrange a visit?

To arrange a visit or find out more, please contact your local library.
