Need help getting library books/audio books?

Print PDF

The Home Library Service is for people who find it difficult to get to their nearest library due to ill health, disability or caring responsibilities. We can usually arrange for one of our local volunteers to visit to exchange library materials on a monthly basis.  We appreciate that often the social contact with a volunteer is as important as the library items they choose and deliver. This service is free and available in all Hampshire County Council libraries, including Alton library. There are no charges to hire audio books, and no overdue charges for late returns. All our volunteers are DBS (CRB) checked and comply with instructions and standards as set out by library staff.


We can deliver a wide range of fiction and non-fiction books in standard and large print formats, specialist books and items from our Reminiscence collection, audio books on CD, MP3 CD (a whole book on one disc) and Playaways which are easy to use digital players. We can also offer National Talking newspapers and Magazines which can be downloaded onto a memory stick and listened to through any device with an MP3 USB connection.

If you know someone who could benefit from this service, or if you know of anyone who would like to join our team of volunteers, please talk to staff at your nearest library, call us on 0300 555 1387, or apply online at  https://www.hants.gov.uk/library/servicesforyou/homelibraryservice

If you have any questions about this service, please do not hesitate to contact me.
