Home Delivery Service

Our Home Delivery Service brings the books to you!


Our Home Delivery Service delivers hand-picked books and audiobooks directly to our clients in the Thames area who are not able to visit us in person. Volunteers will visit you regularly at home, with a selection of library books to suit your tastes and needs.

If you are unable to visit the library because of illness, disability, COVID-19 or a short-term injury, we can provide a door-to-door library service.

How do I register for this service?

Contact your local library in Tairua, Mercury Bay or Thames.

What can I borrow?

All of our lending collections are available to Housebound borrowers, including Large Print, Fiction, Non-Fiction, Talking Books, magazines, DVDs and children's books.

I don't need this service, but I'd love to help - how do I sign up to become a Home Delivery volunteer?

We currently have enough volunteers, but we can add you name to our waiting list - contact us and let us know you'd like to volunteer with us.
