Home Library Services

Home Library Service is free to eligible residents in the Waverley area.  We can deliver to you a selection of items based on your reading, listening and viewing preferences.  The service is also available to residents who are unable to carry their loans to and from the library and who wish to come in and select their own material.

We also deliver to Residential Aged Care facilities and Retirement Villages.

Visits are made fortnightly or monthly on a specific delivery day.

Who can join?

Residents who live in the Waverley area who have difficulty coming to the library or carrying their books home due to age or illness or disability.  Full time carers of Home Library Service members are also eligible.

The service is started as soon as possible after the form is received and contact is made.
