Home Library Service

If you, or someone you know, can’t get to the library owing to age, disability or caring responsibilities, it is possible to continue to enjoy using Slough Libraries.

For example, a friend, neighbour or relative (with your agreement) can get a Friends and Family Library card to enable them to select and collect items from the library for you.

Alternatively, if this is not suitable, you can join our free Home Library Service enjoy a visit from Home Library volunteers.  Call 01753 535166 for more details or ask and friend or relative to contact us on your behalf.

The first step is a visit from a member of library staff; they will call for a chat to make sure you receive the sort of books you want to read or help you select your own books via the online library catalogue for your volunteer to deliver.

Whether you enjoy reading for pleasure, or are studying or pursuing an interest, volunteers act as your link with the library and call on you regularly (usually once a month), and can offer a friendly face and a chat too!

If you are studying or pursuing an interest, there are many online resources on the library website you might find useful; and if you enjoy reading for pleasure, you will get a head start looking for something new in the reading ideas section of the website.

You can also contact Slough Libraries with all your questions by phone, email or via the website library contact form, so it’s very easy to get hold of the information you need.
