Home Library Service


Our friendly and personalised Home Library Service is provided to local residents who are not able to attend either the Hamra Centre or Mobile libraries due to illness, disability or frailty.

How it works

A Home Library staff member will contact you to discuss your interests and needs. The staff member then selects a range of items to suit your tastes. At the next visit, these items are then swapped over.

Some clients use the service on a temporary basis (during illness) and others take part on an ongoing basis.

Items available

You can borrow the following items using the Home Library Service:

  • large print and regular books,
  • fiction and non-fiction books,
  • audio books,
  • magazines,
  • items in community languages,
  • jigsaw puzzles,
  • DVDs.

Home pick up

If you are mobile and willing but don’t have transport, a Library Officer can collect you from your home and take you to the Hamra Centre Library to select some materials for borrowing or to use other services. Our staff member then returns you to your door.

This service operates between 10am and 1pm every Monday and Thursday. Make arrangements with the Library Officer on 8416 6237 for a library visit.
