Free book delivery by local libraries

Did you know Brisbane City Council has a free home library service for residents unable to visit a library due to frailty, disability or long-term illness?

Library staff assist with the selection of reading material, including magazines, large print, audio books, DVDs and CDs based on a customer’s interests and preferences. These items are delivered once a month.

In addition to the Home Library Service, council libraries offer a free audiobook postal service for people who are blind or vision impaired. Eligible residents receive a new selection of audiobooks based on their reading profiles and preferences upon the return of their previous mail delivery.

Residents unable to visit a library in-person, and their full-time carers, are eligible for the services. An application form can be obtained from any council library, the online library catalogue eLibCat or mailed to the applicant. Once the form is completed, it can be emailed or mailed to any council library for assessment.

For information about these services, phone Brisbane City Council on 3403 8888.
