Home Library Services

Home Library

Strathfield Library provides a free Home Library Service to residents who are unable to visit the Library due to disability or lack of mobility.

Items are selected by library staff to meet the need or requests of each member and are delivered directly to their home or nursing home on a monthly basis

Self-Select Home Delivery  

Residents who are not housebound but who may experience difficulty carrying library items can join the self-select service and have them delivered.

Members of the self-select service can come into the library, select items to borrow and then leave them at the desk. Library staff will deliver them to the resident on scheduled delivery days and collect any items for return.

Home Library Services are available to people living in the Strathfield Local Government area who are temporarily or permanently housebound due to:

  • Age
  • Illness or injury
  • Physical or sensory impairment
  • Carer responsibilities
  • Living in a care facility

Applicants may be required to provide a letter from their doctor or health care professional.
