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 .
