Our books@home service is available to Salford residents who find it difficult to access their local library.

Books@home customers receive a bespoke service from our library staff. They will select books/audio books for you, based on your tastes and deliver them directly to your door.

You can apply if you lived in Salford and are elderly, have limited mobility, have mental health difficulties, have a visual impairment, have a learning difficulty, are a carer or if you need the service on a temporary basis (i.e. while you recover from an operation or illness).

We offer:

  • The facility to request books
  • A visit every 4 weeks
  • Small and large print books
  • Audio books and e-audio books
  • E-books
  • The opportunity to discuss with staff the type of books you enjoy

We also visit residential homes, daycare centres, social clubs, supported housing and community groups.

The service is FREE but you do need to apply. You can either complete an online application form below, contact us on 0161 609 5150 or email us at mobileservices.library@scll.co.uk.
