Home library service

We provide a free home delivery service to Derbyshire residents who need it either on a permanent or temporary basis.

The service is for anyone who finds it difficult to visit a library or mobile library, or carry their books home.

This could be due to:

  • disability
  • limited mobility
  • illness
  • caring responsibilities

How it works

When you apply for the service, we'll phone you to find out a bit about you, and to tell you more about how the service works. We'll also ask you about what what kind of things you'd like us to deliver. We'll then arrange a visit to follow this up in more detail.

One of our home library assistants will then arrange to visit you once every 4 weeks. 

We deliver to people in their own home as well as those in care homes.

Benefits include:

  • a selection of items tailored to you
  • free requests
  • no charges on overdue books

If you have any questions, email or phone 01629 533444

Other services

You may also be interested in the following services as an alternative to the Home Library Service...

Friends and family

If you have a family member, carer or friend who is willing to visit the library to choose and deliver items for you then we can offer you a 'friends and family' library card instead.

You will have the same benefits as the home library service.

Ebooks, e-audio, and e-magazines

If you have the internet at home you may prefer to use our 24 hour library where you can download free ebooks, e-audio and e-magazines from the comfort of your own home.
