Somerset County Council has launched a new service to bring books to those who are unable to access libraries, whether through long-term illness, mobility issues or caring responsibilities.
The way in which the service works is:
When an individual contacts us we will arrange for a volunteer to visit you. They will ask you what you like to read and the best times to visit you, usually on a fortnightly
or monthly basis.
The volunteer will choose books based on your preferences and deliver them to you .
Our volunteers can also support you in accessing free-e- book, e – audiobooks and e-magazines. They can provide you with audio books and DVDs for free.
All our volunteers are DBS checked and have provided references and undertaken training.
For more information please ring 07814 079831 or visit the Libraries Website
Please pass on this information to anyone you feel may benefit from it..
