Home Library Service

COVID-19 Update

In response to COVID-19 virus, we have suspended the delivery of all library programs, events and outreach services until at least 30 April 2020. This includes our Home Library Service, Bookmobile, School Holiday Program and temporary closure of Gwandalan Library Link. We apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.

The Home Library Service delivers and exchanges library items to eligible Library customers on a regular basis.

This free service exists to provide library materials to Library members (and/or their carers) who - through reasons including disability, chronic physical or mental illness, fragility or limited mobility - are unable to access the Library in person, either temporarily or permanently.

There are no age restrictions on this service.

Home Library Service visits can be made to individual customers at their home or in care facilities. Regular bulk deliveries to care facilities can also be arranged.

All borrowing materials available through the Central Coast Library Service are available through the Home Library Service.

These include:

  • Fiction and Non Fiction books (including large print)
  • Magazines
  • Material in community languages
  • Audio books and MP3s
  • Music CDs
  • DVDs
  • Electronic Resources such as eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, eMusic and information databases are also available via the Library’s website (ask us for help accessing these if required)

If you are interested in receiving this service please contact your local Central Coast Library Service branch or the Home Library Operators. We will then talk with you to develop a personal profile of what you want to read, watch or listen to, based on your preferences.


The information on this page may not be correct during this unprecedented health event. Essential services are still being provided to the community, however many Council services and programs have been placed on hold while facilities and some open spaces are closed.
Our COVID-19 information area details all impacts to Council services, facilities and programs as well as the local response to coronavirus.
