Home Library Service Deliverer

We deliver books and audio books to people at their homes or in care homes in all areas of Kirklees when they cannot get to library buildings. It’s vital when people are getting older or recovering form illness that they can still have access to books which keep their minds active and means they are less likely to feel lonely and isolated.

Opportunities Overview
  • Volunteer Role Title
    Home Library Service Deliverer
  • About the Volunteer Role
    Home Library Service Volunteers (HLS) deliver books and talking books for people who may be isolated, housebound or have mobility issues. You will deliver (and return) books and CDs to people's homes to help combat loneliness. You will also discuss reading and listening preferences and check the service user is safe and well, reporting any concerns to the appropriate person. You will be assisting the local staff team and/or volunteer coordinator to keep the service running smoothly. COVID-19 UPDATE: This service is particularly important at the moment as the Libraries in Kirklees are temporarily closed due to the restrictions. You will either collect the books from Huddersfield Library or we can arrange for them to be delivered to your home if your are delivering to a number of homes and you cannot get to Huddersfield easily. You will be making the deliveries to people's doorsteps and then having a socially distanced chat with them from outside if they wish. Full training and PPE will be provided and you can deliver books to people in your local community near to where you live.
