Covering the whole of Blackpool, we offer a service to get books straight to you, at home.

We love providing people with the opportunity to continue reading even when they can’t reach the library. We understand that age, infirmity, or disability, may leave you struggling to access the services that you once loved. Our At Home Service provides you with the opportunity to continue using your library by delivering both books and audiobooks straight to your door.

In Blackpool, there are a number of residents who benefit from this service, which relies on the help of friendly volunteers to run smoothly. Our At Home Service volunteers visit a Blackpool library once every three weeks to collect books that have been specially picked for our readers. With routes covering a small area of Blackpool, volunteers can expect to visit between four and eight users, depending on a certain areas demand.

Here’s what one of our volunteers had to say…

“Being a volunteer with Blackpool Library Service is extremely rewarding. It started out as a way for me to give something back to the community, but I have built real bonds with the readers I deliver to. The level of gratitude you receive is incomparable.”
