DID you know your local library offers a free home delivery service for eligible people?

The Home Library Service is available to Bega Valley Shire residents who are unable to visit the library due to age, illness or disability.

Home Library Service coordinator Tanya Apps said the service is free of charge and is supported by the contribution of volunteer workers.

“To be eligible for this service, endorsement is required from a medical professional to certify that you are housebound and unable to visit the library,” she said.

“Following an assessment visit from the Home Library Service coordinator, items are delivered every three weeks by volunteer drivers to your home or aged-care facility.

“Previously borrowed items will be collected and returned to the library, and all volunteers are identified by their Bega Valley Shire library volunteer badge.

“This valuable and much loved service has been up and running for more than three years and we are very grateful to our team of 20 dedicated volunteers.

“They help to bring pleasure to many who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the services offered by the library,” Ms Apps said.

Please contact Tanya Apps on 6499 2244 for more information.
