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LibraryPlus Mobile Library Service withdrawn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on the future of the Library Service and the final decision by Cabinet, the Mobile Library Service has now been withdrawn.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

During the current Covid-19 crisis Northamptonshire Libraries is running a limited Library to You service and may be able to arrange a delivery for housebound customers and those unable to make it to their local Northamptonshire County Council library at present. To find out if we are able to offer you this service please contact your nearest Northamptonshire County Council library.

Library members can still access a range of e-books, e-audiobooks, e-newspapers and e-magazines from home through our library online.

For anyone who is not currently a member, it is easy to join the library as a virtual member and take advantage of these resources.
