Books at Home

Our Books at Home service provides library material on a regular basis for people who, for reasons of ill health or disability, are unable to come to the library.

This service is available free of charge to residents of Hastings District, dependant on location and availability of a volunteer courier or family member.

To minimise costs and time, we will try to assign you to a Books at Home volunteer who lives near you.

To be eligible for the service, you must:

  • Be housebound
  • No longer drive a vehicle

A temporarily housebound status may be available if you are recovering from an illness or accident.

If you are eligible to receive the Books at Home service please contact the Community Engagement Librarian at your library. You will be interviewed in your own home to find out your reading tastes, delivery information and issue periods required.  We will join you up if you are not already a library member.

Contact Hastings District Libraries on +64 06 871 5000, or email: libraries@hdc.govt.nz for more information.
