Services to day centres, sheltered housing and residential homes

The Hospitals and Residential Homes Service provides collections of materials to sheltering housing complexes, residential homes, hospitals etc for a longer loan period.

Users of this service can borrow from a full range of materials such as fiction and non-fiction titles, large print books, and books on cassette. You can also borrow music CDs.  We will try to satisfy any requirements including large print editions, special subject areas, or particular types of books (animal stories, romance etc).

We ask that a membership form detailing the contact information, required profile and frequency of exchange be completed and we will prepare the collection and arrange the delivery.

If you want to join the service or find out more about it please contact Library services.
