Volunteers are needed to save a home library service which covers Bexley.

Bexley and Bromley Library Service are looking for people to assist with the home service, which brings the resources of a library to residents from both boroughs who cannot get to

Peggy, who uses the service, said: “I have been reading all my life and I’m really enjoying the service. I get such a good selection of books. I am so grateful.”

Volunteers from the Women’s Royal Voluntary Service visit homes every month with a variety of books, including large print copies for visually impaired readers.

Cllr Don Massey said that the service is a “lifeline” for many housebound readers.

The service is available for people including the elderly, the disabled and carers.

To get involved please contact 020 3045 4565, email or ask at your local library.
