Accessibility Libraries

Cambridgeshire Libraries offer various services to users who are housebound due to mobility or health problems and people with hearing difficulties or visual impairment. Concessions are available if you or someone you know fall into any of these categories.

Library at home service

This service is provided to Cambridgeshire residents who find it difficult to get to the library whether this is due to disability, illness or caring responsibilities (either on a permanent or temporary basis).

We can help by providing a monthly visit from a volunteer to bring you books / audiobooks tailored to your preferences.

After an initial visit by a member of Cambridgeshire Library staff to discuss your requirements, we will aim to match you with a local volunteer.

Library at Home volunteers have time for a chat, can bring you health literature and even bring hearing aid batteries for NHS hearing aids. People with a visual impairment can request large-print books, or audio books on CD.

This service is open to any age group.

This is a free service but donations are gladly welcomed to support this valuable provision.
