Anyone who is physically unable to visit a library can have books, audio books and music delivered to their home by library volunteers and library staff or have items collected from the library by a friend or relative.

At home readers are not charged for borrowing or requesting books, audio books or music.

Blind and Partially Sighted People

We have a wide range of books in large print, talking books and eAudio in our libraries. These all appear in our library catalogue. Visually impaired customers are not charged for borrowing or requesting any of these items.

Our eAudio collection is growing all the time and any library member can download these titles onto their device for free from anywhere with an Internet connection. More help with eAudio is available.

For people who are registered blind or partially sighted, the Royal National Institute for the Blind have a very large library of audio books on CD, USB or available as a digital download. Customers can borrow up to six talking books at any time, completely free of charge. We can also direct you to their books in Braille and Moon.

Our library computers have software that can magnify text, read documents/webpages aloud and allow you to choose colour schemes that will meet your sight requirements. Most libraries also have a large print keyboard available on request.
