Home Library Service

Our Home Library Service provides a selection of library books and audio-visual materials to those who are unable to visit the library in-person. Supported by a team of volunteers, deliveries are made to eligible members every four weeks.


The Home Library Service is available to anyone who lives in East Dunbartonshire and meets one of the below criteria:

  • is unable to leave their home,
  • is a resident in a care facility,
  • has a long- or short-term illness,
  • has vision or hearing loss,
  • is shielding as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.

How to apply:

A member of staff will then get in touch with you to discuss your reading preferences, delivery times and explain any procedures.
