New Home Library Service

New Home Library Service

Do you struggle to get in to the Yankalilla Library because of health or access issues? Do you know someone who would enjoy a regular home library visit?

The Yankalilla Public Library Service is pleased to be introducing a new service – the Home Library Service – to eligible residents of the District Council of Yankalilla. This is a free service available to people who are aged, frail, have other health or disability issues that mean they are unable to visit the library. As well the service is offered to carers and children of these people, who may also find it difficult to get to the library.

The Library Service wishes to ensure that all residents of Yankalilla are able to have access to all the wonderful resources from the South Australia Public Library Network. These resources include books for all ages, in standard print and large print, fiction and non-fiction. There are DVDs and music CDs, magazines and talking books. There is also a large range of downloadable eBooks, eAudio books and eMagazines available and the service can help customers download these to their devices.

Monthly visits will be negotiated with the customer, so library items can be delivered to their home and exchanged on a regular basis. The Home Library Staff person will discuss with each customer what they would like to read, watch or listen to so that a selection of material can be supplied catering to individual likes and interests.

The Library Service is asking for expressions of interest from people who think they may like to have this service and also referrals from people who think they may know someone who may benefit from the service.

If you would like to find out more please contact Kathryn, at the Yankalilla Library, on 8558 2043.

Referral forms are available at the Yankalilla Library and off the Library Service’s webpage on the District Council of Yankalilla’s website.
