Call our Outreach Services team or ask a friend, relative or care organisation staff to contact us on your behalf.  We will arrange for the delivery of your preferred library items to your home on a specified day each month, and the previous month's loans will be collected. The Library also offers a self-select service for those members who can visit our libraries but have difficulties carrying their items home.
