Home Library Service

The Home Library Service (HLS) has been developed to provide services to people living in the Albany area who are unable to access the library due to age, disability and/or limited mobility.


Albany residents who cannot visit a library due to illness, frailty and/or disability, and who do not have someone else who can do so on their behalf, are eligible to receive a delivery to their home. Recipients of our Home Library Service may reside in private homes or in residential care facilities. There is no charge for membership for the Home Delivery Service.


The following materials are available for loan:

  • Fiction and non-fiction books (standard & large print) 
  • Magazines 
  • DVDs 
  • Talking books (CD, MP3) 
  • Jigsaws 
  • Multi-language materials

Patrons are able to borrow up to 20 items. The loan period is one month with an option to renew for a further month.

Please contact us for more information about Home Library Service.
