Home delivery service

Books Delivered to Your Door

If you live in North Lanarkshire but have difficulty getting out and about to use your local library or mobile library, then the free Home Delivery service could be for you. This service is available to all ages as well as those who have caring responsibilities. This service can also be offered on a temporary basis e.g. if you have just had an operation or accident. You also don’t need to be a current library member, we can take care of that for you.

We can deliver:

  • Standard print books for adults and children, fiction and non-fiction.
  • Talking books (on CD and MP3).
  • Large print books.
  • Bookmarks.

For our Home Delivery customers, we can also deliver hearing aid batteries when delivering books.
