Wolverhampton Home Library and Advice Service

Here you will find out more information on the Home Library Service. 
As well as other Libraries located in the City.                                                                                                                          

The Home Library and advice Service caters for a wide range of needs and provides books and materials in standard and large print, plus audiobooks; we also have a selection of jigsaws. The service delivers to residents right across the city who are unable because of mobility or other issues e.g. caring for someone full-time to access their local lbraries themselves. We also offer access to:

Borrowbox, the online E:Library available though Wolverhampton Library Services where books can be borrowed free of charge and downloaded to your tablet or Kindle, and

PressReader, another free-of-charge online service which gives access to over 7000 newspapers, periodicals and magazines from around the world on your electronic device.

If you don't have a tablet or laptop we can now offer a 3 x month free loan for you to try one out as part of the City Council's drive to get residents of all ages on line, and 

All our customers have direct access to Citizens Advice generalist support with onward referral to more specialist advice services if required.

Referral Details

The Home Library Service delivers on 24 routes covering the city to those who, for a range of reasons, have difficulty accessing their local or central library services.

We normally require a referral through one of our partner agencies e.g. Age Concern, Wolverhampton Social Prescribing Service, City of Wolverhampton Social Services, local health services, voluntary sector agencies but are also willing to consider care home, family and personal referrals too.

Please contact Bridget on 01902 946846 for more information; we look forward to hearing from you. Please note that because we are working from home this number requires you to leave a message. We aim, however, to get back to you within 24 hours unless your query is at the weekend.
