The Residential Home Library role enables readers unable to use a Torbay library to receive library books in a variety of formats. Working alongside the reader, you will choose, collect and deliver library books to individuals living in residential care, sheltered accommodation or a hospital.

You will create a profile of reader preferences and choose items they will enjoy from the library, then deliver and return these items every 3-6 weeks. Alongside making book deliveries this is a great opportunity for making new friends and sharing interests.

To find out more please contact Colin Bray - colin.bray@librariesunlimited.org.uk 

When: Every week
