Home Library Service

Are you unable to visit the library?

Your Library offers Home Library Service to any residents who are unable to visit their local library and have no one to assist them with library borrowing. The service consists of a visit every four weeks to deliver library materials which may have been requested, or were selected by library staff. The home library service can deliver from the entire library collection, including:

  • Fiction and nonfiction books
  • Large Print books
  • Audiobooks in CD or MP3 format
  • Magazines
  • Music CDs
  • DVDs
  • Materials in languages other than English.
Staff will talk to you about what your interests are and what sort of material you want, including any specific titles you wish to receive.

Are you eligible?

  • You live in the Knox, Maroondah or Yarra Ranges Council areas;
  • You cannot physically visit the library because of illness, frailty or disability, or if you are temporarily housebound;
  • You have a genuine need for the service.


To express your interest in the service, or ask any questions, please call 9800 6400 or submit a query here.
