PEOPLE in North Yorkshire are being urged to give up their time to deliver books to people who can’t get to their library.

The home library service provides free delivery for people who, perhaps because of ill health or disability, find it difficult to get to the library or to carry books.

Books are carefully chosen for each customer by the library team then the delivery volunteers deliver them once a fortnight.

Volunteers also tend to spend time at each house having a chat about the books - and the customers enjoy having a regular visitor.

Several county council libraries and community-managed libraries across the county are now seeking more selection and delivery volunteers
