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.
