Do you choose library items for a friend or relative who is housebound because of a health problem or due to their responsibilities as a carer? If you do this, they are eligible for Housebound status which gives them an extended issue date and other benefits. Do you know anyone who is Housebound who may like a volunteer courier to deliver library books, audio books, DVD or even a jigsaw to their home on a regular basis? Any adult or child who is disabled or due to their health problems and carer responsibilities is unable to get to their local library is eligible for this service.
If you would like further information or know someone who is eligible for this service please contact: Sandra Wilson, Community Librarian, firstname.lastname@example.org
