Homebound service

Library books delivered to your home

If you enjoy reading or listening to talking books, but are unable to visit the library due to disability or illness, our homebound service may be able to help.  Books are selected to your requirements and delivered to you at home.  Deliveries and return collections are usually carried out monthly, however during COVID 19 these timescales may be subject to change.

During COVID 19 restrictions, if you have been advised to shield you may be able to receive the service during this time.  For more information please contact Food Train West Lothian.
