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 librarycommunityservices@bexley.gov.uk or ask at your local library.
