Home Library Service Book 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

  • About the Volunteer Role
    As a Home Library Service Volunteer (HLS) you will be assisting the local Kirklees staff team by delivering books and talking books for people who may be elderly, housebound or have mobility issues. Books are delivered once every four weeks. As a Book Deliverer you will deliver (and return) books and CDs to people in their own homes to help combat loneliness. You will discuss reading and listening preferences and help choose and reserve books and CDs (from the library’s online catalogue), using a Reader’s Profile provided by the local staff team or volunteer coordinator. During your visits you will check the service user is safe and well, reporting any concerns to the appropriate person. You will be assisting the Royal Voluntary Service staff and/or local volunteer coordinator in keeping the service running smoothly.
