Home Library Service Volunteers - Waterlooville Library

Do you love books?

Would you like to make a difference by taking books and audio books to people?

Home Library Service Volunteers help once a month by selecting books from their local library & visiting customers to exchange them. This service is for those who can't get to the local library to borrow books due to ill health/mobility problems or caring responsibilities.

As a volunteer for the Home Library Service you can enhance somebody's life not only through the library materials that you take for them, but also through your companionship and contact you give them with the outside world.

Good friendships have developed out of this service we very much hope that this will be your experience too.
