The Home Library Service provides a free home delivery of library materials to people living in the Campbelltown area who are unable to visit the library because of incapacity due to age, illness or disability.

How does it work?

First, we get to know you and what you enjoy. Our team build a personalised profile about you to understand your needs and preferences. A home library service team member then selects items from the collection on a regular basis to meet your needs and preferences.

We organise a regular delivery to you in your home. The delivery service is provided by Campbelltown Library with assistance from Meals on Wheels volunteers.

If you or your loved one are currently living in residential aged care, we may already be providing our service to that location.

What kind of items are available?

There's a wide range of resources available including:

  • Fiction and Non-Fiction Books
  • Large Print Books
  • Audio/Talking Books
  • Entertainment DVDs
  • Music CDs
