Home and Community Delivery Services

The Home Library Service is a free home delivery service for residents of the Greater Hume Council who are unable to visit one of the Greater Hume Libraries in person, by reason of age, sickness or other incapacity.

Please print the Home Library Service Application Form and Reader Profile Form or contact the library to request a Home Library Service application package to be posted to you.

Staff will conduct a telephone interview to introduce you to the service. Books and other library materials will be selected according to your preferences, and delivered to your home on a fortnightly or monthly basis.
