Kent Libraries and Archives
Kent County Council’s libraries offer a Home Library service, delivering books and talking books on CD or tape to individuals in their own homes. This is available to people of all ages in the community, who for reason of poor health or mobility, or caring responsibilities, cannot regularly get to their local library.
If you know of anyone who may benefit from this service, whether long term sick, physically homebound, a carer, or someone leaving hospital who may need this service for just a few weeks, please let us know by contacting the Home Library team at Dartford library on 01322 221133. We’ll be happy to help.
