Bristol Home Library Service

The Bristol Home Library Service offers free delivery of library books to anyone who lives within Bristol City Council’s boundaries and would find it hard to get to a library themselves.

The BHLS has volunteers who are allocated to individual service users and these volunteers can choose and deliver the books usually on a monthly basis.  This means that you will get to know the volunteer who chooses your books for you. 

 The volunteers stay for a chat with their service user and the friendships that can develop are a particular feature of the BHLS.

The BHLS is managed by Hetty Metcalfe of The Royal Voluntary Service and funded by Bristol City Council. 

 The BHLS works alongside Bristol Libraries to offer its service users ordinary print and large print books, audio books and music CDs.   

If you think either yourself or someone you know might benefit from this free service please contact:
