Home Library Service

Home Library Service is free to the residents of Barking & Dagenham. We can deliver collections of books, audiobooks or music to anyone who is home-restricted because of age or disability (long or short term).

We visit you to find out what kind of books and music you enjoy and what format of books you prefer.

This can be:

  • audiobooks
  • large print
  • paperback books
  • hardback books

The collections are delivered monthly and requests are taken for particular titles or subjects.

Care homes and sheltered housing

We also provide collections of books to care homes and sheltered housing in the borough. These collections are changed on a regular basis.
