Books on wheels - the library service for housebound people
The Mobile Library no longer visits the village.
Surrey County Council have launched a new service called Books on wheels.If you are housebound because of illness or disability we can arrange for books and audio material to be brought to you on a regular basis by a volunteer.
We have a good selection of books in large print as well as standard print. We stock a large range of talking tapes and CDs which can be played on a standard machine.
There is no charge for this service and we also offer a free request service.
Alternatively, friends, neighbours or relatives who visit the library can be registered to borrow books for you.
Separate arrangements are made for people living in residential and nursing homes.
Volunteers - Have you a few hours to spare, and would you like to help people who can't get to the library? If you would like to be a volunteer helping Surrey Libraries in partnership with WRVS to deliver books directly to people in their own home or to co-ordinate such deliveries please go to the Surrey County Council website to find a description of the two roles:
