Home Library | Age UK CoventryDo you enjoy reading or listening to audio books?

Is it difficult for you to get to your local library to choose new items or are you not able to carry heavy books home?

Our home library service could be just right for you.

How we work

Working closely with Coventry City Libraries our team of friendly and committed volunteers will visit you at home each month, bringing you a fresh supply of books or audio books specially chosen for you.

How do I join?

Please contact us using the details below and we will arrange for one of our trusted volunteers to visit you in the comfort of your own home to have a chat with you about what type of books or audio books you would like.

What happens next?

We inform your local library of your choices and each month the library staff will prepare your delivery. Our volunteers will collect your items, deliver them to you and collect the items that you have finished with.

We will always let you know exactly what day we will be calling each month and there is usually time for a chat with our friendly volunteer too.

How much does the home library service cost?

The home library service is completely free.

Could you help us?

If you could spare a few hours each month to help deliver books and other library items to people in their own homes, you could make such a difference.

Comments from some home library service users

'I so look forward to seeing the volunteer and the selection of library books he brings me. I don’t get to see many people, so it’s really nice to see him and we always have a friendly chat.’

'I rely on this as I am an avid reader. I cannot go out alone and I couldn’t get to the library.'
