Home Library Service Local Volunteer Coordinator

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.
