Find out about the home library service

The home library service is run by the volunteers from your local community. They choose books and audio books that meet your preferences and bring them to your home every three weeks.

This service is free to anyone who is not able to get to a library and doesn’t have anyone to go for them.

For example, the service can be used by people who are recovering from a long illness or a hospital stay, as well as by people who have a longer term requirement.  

If you would like to use this service or help as a volunteer, see the contact details at the bottom of the page.

Housebound ticket

A ‘housebound ticket’ is slightly different to the home library service. If you are not able to visit a library but have someone who will go on your behalf, you can take advantage of this.

The ticket allows you to borrow up to 16 items at a time and no fines are charged if the items become overdue.

For more information, speak to a staff member at any Swindon library.
