The home library service is free and available to any person who has a disability which makes them housebound, so they are unable to get to a library, and live within the boundary of Coventry. If this is you, or someone you know, they could benefit from receiving a monthly collection of items from the library service. The items are picked from the shelves of a community library, based on your preferences, and delivered to your home on a monthly basis. The items can be books, including large print books, talking books and other information. You can also request any item free of charge and there is no limit (within reason) to the number of items borrowed or delivered once a month.
While we try to target the most needy, you do not have to be totally housebound in order to receive the service - for example, many people can get to a library by some means but cannot carry the books home.
If you have received items in your last delivery that you were unhappy with, or want to change your preferences so that you receive different genres or authors, then you can contact us to amend your preferences.
If you no longer want to receive the home library service, you can contact us to cancel the service. You can also contact us if you are a family member, friend or neighbour of a home library service client who has passed away.
