The Friends of the Library service provides an opportunity for avid readers, who can no longer access the library independently, an avenue to continue to borrow and enjoy books.

The program sees volunteers visit the library to choose books for residents registered with the program and deliver them direct to their door.

It aims to:

  • support and encourage free libraries
  • give voluntary and practical help in maintaining and extending library services
