Care Homes and Sheltered Housing

Our mobile library service offers extended services to older people in residential, care homes and sheltered housing. We deliver this service using four modern, specially designed mobile library vehicles, all of which are fully accessible with disabled ramp access.

Family stories, romance, westerns, crime novels, biographies, history and travel books are available in various formats, including normal print, large print or audio CDs. Illustrated books provide pictures of animals and wildlife, Scotland, the Royal Family, flowers, gardens, steam trains, and much more. Scottish music, musicals and old films are popular choices of DVDs for residents’ own use.

We try to ensure that everyone’s reading tastes and interests are catered for! You can also request specific titles and types of books.
