Delivery services

If you would like information on:

  • Home delivery service
  • Library service to residential homes

Our home delivery service is offered to those who are unable to visit their local library and who do not have anyone who can visit on their behalf. This is a free service providing books and spoken word CDs on a six week basis.

We assess applicants with a visit by staff who have been trained and checked by the Criminal Records Bureau. Once a decision has been made we will organise the first delivery and talk to applicants about their reading preferences. This can be a short or long term arrangement. The details may be shared with adult social care teams so that the council has a greater understanding of what services residents in Herefordshire are receiving.

If you would like any further information about this service or you know someone in your community who may be eligible, please contact the delivered library service on 01432 260645 or email deliveredlibraryservice@herefordshire.gov.uk
