Barnet Council is inviting residents who are finding it harder to visit the library this winter because of age, disability or problems with mobility to sign up with Barnet’s Home Library Service.

The service is free to those with mobility problems and readers receive a delivery of library stock to their liking once every four weeks. Specific titles can also be reserved for free.

The service is available to:

people with mobility or health issues
parents with young children at home who might find it difficult to get to the library
people who would need to travel to the library by public transport

Those accepted can borrow books, large print books, audiobooks, music CDs, books in community languages and DVDs are also available to rent.

Those interested should call 020 8359 3901 or contact [email protected] to find out more.
