Home Library Service

In September 2016, OCC launched a county-wide campaign for Home Library Service volunteers. This successful campaign has led to 150 volunteer applications so far, and the campaign was shortlisted for a public sector communications award. Home Library Service volunteers choose and deliver books to those who are unable to get to a library.

More information about the scheme, including details of what volunteering involves and interviews with those who benefit from the service, can be found at: http://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/homelibrary


News Letter

The Library Service has also recently launched a bi-monthly newsletter sent to 6000 library service users. It contains the latest libraries news, events, book recommendations, volunteering opportunities and more, including information about Zinio (free electronic magazines), eBooks, People’s Network (free public access to computers) and Wi-Fi in Libraries.
