For older people who enjoy reading or listening to a recording but can’t get out of the house, our home library services offer a vital link to the local library.
Happyvillage Service Books on Wheels volunteers bring a selection of books, large print, DVDs, CDs and audio tapes to older people in their home on a regular basis. The volunteer is also a friendly face and a useful check on the safety and well-being of the older person.
Happyvillage Service run Books on Wheels services across the city which deliver regular books at your door step.
Older people who sign up to the service are asked to complete a questionnaire to indicate their tastes and preferences. In many instances, however, our volunteers (either as Good Neighbors or through the Befriending service) will get to know those they are helping to such an extent that they will begin to make their own recommendations and bring a selection of books they believe will be of interest.
