The Shop Bound Service is tailored to meet the needs of those people in shops whose working hours match the library hours, and so are unable to access the library and its services. The service will operate like the housebound library service, which delivers bags of books directly to people unable to come to the library.
People wanting to take part in the Shop Bound Service simply need to fill out a library application form if they are not a member already, and answer a brief questionnaire which will give library staff their reading preferences. Using these preferences, library staff will select relevant material, check it out for the user, and deliver a bag of books to their shop every two weeks.
If any business or shop wishes to use this service, please ring 6740 2190 and a staff member will visit with the relevant forms.
