Covid19 Temporary expanded Home Library Service

During Covid19 restrictions Camden Council Library Services are expanding their Home Library Service (HLS) to include those most vulnerable in our community. If you are 60 years of age or older, or someone who is medically vulnerable, you are eligible for this service. This is a temporary situation while restrictions are in place and/or the library branches are closed.

Normally this delivery service is only available to residents who are unable to visit one of the Camden Council Libraries in person, by reason of age, sickness or other incapacity.

To be eligible for this service you must:

  • Live in the Camden LGA
  • Be 60 years of age or older, or medically vulnerable (medical certificate required)
  • Be a member of Camden Council Library Service

How does it work?

  • Call Narellan Library (Monday to Friday - 9am to 5pm) on 4645 5039 to apply
  • Complete a HLS questionaire with staff over the phone
  • Advise staff how many items you would like delivered - maximum of 10 items per delivery. Staff can select items for you or you could suggest a few titles by looking at the library catalogue prior to calling the library to register (due to current restrictions only items available from Narellan Library can be selected).
  • Once your items are available staff will contact you to advise you of your delivery date. We will endeavour to arrange delivery to your home within 5 working days. Due to the demand, some orders may take a little longer to get to you. Please bear with us during this busy period.
  • Items will be left at your door for a contactless delivery.
  • About four weeks after your delivery, we will contact you to arrange pick-up/return of your items.

Home Library Service

The Home Library Service is available to people living in Camden Local Government Area who are temporarily or permanently housebound due to: age, illness, injury or carer responsibilities. Customers who receive this service have books and other items selected for them, based on their interests.  The items are delivered once a month by volunteers.

If you are interested in applying for this service, please contact the Home Library Officer at Narellan Library here.
