Home library service

Home library service van

If you, or someone you know, is unable to access the library (either permanently or temporarily), the Home Library service operates within the Toowoomba City and Highfields boundaries. This is a free service and to be eligible a doctor’s certificate is required.

Receiving library materials from the home library service

Once membership has been approved, library staff will contact you and ask you for your reading preferences. Library staff will then choose books and other library material according to your needs. Books are delivered to your home every three weeks, by caring volunteers who generously give their time to support this service. 

Resources available for loan through the home library

  • Books in regular and large print
  • Audio books on cassette and CD
  • Books in languages other than English
  • Fiction and non-fiction books
  • Magazines from our special collection
  • Music CDs
  • DVDs from our special selection
  • Bookstands

To apply for membership to the homebound library service, please contact us.

We thank Mr Lex Graham and the Toowoomba East Rotary Club for making this service possible.
