Be a Home Library Service Volunteer!

Monday, 1st February 2016

We are looking for enthusiastic volunteers to help us provide a vital service within Southend.

Every month highly dedicated volunteers are delivering books, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks and a friendly face to our house bound clients who cannot easily use their local library and we want you to join us.

Just ask yourself these questions:

 Do you like meeting new people?

 Do you love reading and have a passion for your community?

 Can you give just one morning or afternoon of your time a month to deliver

reading materials and a smile?


If you answered yes then get in touch to find out more about how you can become a Home Library Service Volunteer and a vital link to those who need it. Full training and support will be provided.

For more information or an application form please contact our Libraries and Museums Volunteer Support Officer, email: 


Make a difference with us:

"They are more like friends who come for a visit."

"I love the service - it's a lifeline!"

"I would be lost without books."

"The books on CD allow me to carry on reading."
