Home Library and Information Service

HLIS LogoIf you find it difficult to visit the community library we can help.

Our FREE Home Library and Information Service (HLIS) brings books, large print books, movies on DVD and audiobooks right to your door.

Our volunteers can choose books to suit your tastes. We deliver them to you once a fortnight or keep them at the library for collection by a member of your family, a carer or a friend.

This service is ideal if you are unable to get to the library, cannot carry books comfortably, or if you are a busy carer. We deliver to people who live in residential and nursing homes too.

There’s more information about the Home Library and Information Service here.

How to join HLIS

Either call into the library, drop us an email at ecl.generalenquiries@gmail.com  or ring us on 01609 534584 to arrange a home visit.  One of our friendly volunteers will talk to you about your reading, listening and watching preferences. We’ll then tailor the selections we make on your behalf. Your items will be brought to your home once a fortnight. We’ll collect items for return to the library. It’s easy!
