Councils across the UK are asking residents to tell them what they think of transport and roads services in their area.

Library book collection service

You can have books collected by a relative, friend or neighbour if you have problems getting to a library.

Anyone who is a full member of the library can collect books on your behalf using our free 'Good Neighbour' membership scheme. This is a great service if you find it difficult to visit a library yourself.

How the service works

Register and tell us:

  • who'll be borrowing books on your behalf
  • which types of books you like (such as thrillers or romance)
  • if you've got any special preferences (such as large print or talking books)

Your 'Good Neighbour' (who needs their own library membership) can either get a separate card to borrow books for you or we can select books and your 'Good Neighbour' just collects the bag of books on a regular basis.

Register for book collection

You need to provide:

  • contact details
  • the name and library membership details of your nominated delivery person
  • information about the kind of books you like to read

Ask your 'Good Neighbour' to complete a form with you and return it to any of our libraries .
