Housebound service

The Housebound Service ensures the information, recreation, cultural and educational needs of all library members are met by bringing the library service to the user.

Who can use this service?

People who:

  • have an illness or disability that prevents them from visiting a library in person.  These conditions may be temporary, recurring or permanent.
  • are able to visit a library, but due to mobility restrictions, are unable to transport library items home.
  • live in residential establishments such as nursing homes, hostels, hospitals.
  • are engaged in full-time care for people with a disability.

Housebound service is available to residents who are unable to visit the library and do not have family or friends who can assist them with either transport or selection and collection of library material.

How do I join?

  • An initial interview with library staff to ascertain eligibility for the Housebound Service is recommended.
  • A Housebound Membership form must be completed and returned to the library.
  • An assessment by a library staff member will ensure the Housebound client receives their preferred reading material.
