Home Library Service

Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, we have suspended delivery of the home library service until further notice.

Home Library Service

The Home Library Service is for any Bexley resident who cannot use their local library. This free service is for those who are:

  • Blind or partially sighted
  • Suffering long term illness
  • Elderly
  • Unable to get out to a library
  • Disabled
  • Recovering from an operation
  • Unable to carry heavy books or talking books
  • Carers of adults or children
  • Experiencing mental health problems
  • Restricted to their home for religious reasons
  • Unable to go out without help

Once you are a member, volunteers will visit you each month with a new selection of books or talking books. We will arrange a regular day and time with you during your application.

How to apply

You can apply in person or someone can apply on your behalf. To get started:
