Housebound Book Delivery Service
Are you, or someone you know, unable to get to the library?
Taupō and Tūrangi Library offer a free, monthly book selection and delivery service to library members who are unable to access the library.
Who can use the service?
To be eligible for this service you need to be a library member and unable to access the library in the short or long-term due to disability, illness, or injury. If you are not a library member, contact us about joining.
How does it work?
Books are selected by library staff based on your preferences. Once a month, books are then delivered by volunteer drivers or can be collected by a friend or relative.
Please be aware the service relies on the availability of volunteers and although we will endeavour to provide a district service there may be some rural areas that we are unable to provide deliveries to. All enquiries are welcome.
How do I register for the service?
You will need to complete an application and, if eligible for the service, we will arrange a phone call to find out your preferences.
If you are interested in this service, contact staff at Taupō or Tūrangi Library.
