Home library service

The Home Library Service is for Plymouth residents who want to borrow books and audiobooks but who are unable to get to a library; either through ill health, injury or disability. 

You can tell us your reading likes and dislikes and our library volunteers will select books for you and deliver them to your home every four weeks. 

You can choose from fiction, non-fiction, audiobooks and large print titles. 

Our volunteers always wear ID cards so it's easy to identify them

For people who are housebound, this free service allows access to the library and books as well as a regular visit from a friendly face. 

Email library@plymouth.gov.uk or call 01752 305900 for more information.
