Home Library Service with Slough Libraries
If you, or someone you know, can't get to the library owing to age, disability or caring responsibilities, it is possible to continue to enjoy using Slough Libraries.
For example, a friend, neighbour or relative (with your agreement) can get a Friends and Family Library card to enable them to select and collect items from the library for you.
Alternatively, if this is not suitable, you can join our free Home Library Service enjoy a visit from Home Library volunteers. Ask for more details at your local library or ask a friend or relative to contact us on your behalf. The link at the top of this page will take you to the Home Library Service page of the Slough Libraries website, where you can watch an informative video on this service.
The first step is a visit from a member of library staff; they will call for a chat to make sure you receive the sort of books you want to read or help you select your own books via the online library catalogue for your volunteer to deliver.
Whether you enjoy reading for pleasure, or are studying or pursuing an interest, volunteers act as your link with the library and call on you regularly (usually once a month), and can offer a friendly face and a chat too!
If you are interested in becoming a Home Library Service volunteer, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information, or find out about Home Library Service volunteering on Slough Libraries website.
If you are studying or pursuing an interest, there are many online resources on the library website you might find useful; and if you enjoy reading for pleasure, you will get a head start looking for something new in the Reading section of the website.
