Cambridgeshire library doorstep service

click to go to Disability Cambridgeshire

Do you like reading books? Can you imagine not being able to get to a library to get them?

Would you like to share your love of books with people who are housebound?

Have you got an hour or two to spare each month and do you get on with people?

Maybe you have a friend who would also like to help.

If so, The Doorstep Service of Cambridgeshire Libraries and Information would like to hear from you.

We do a free monthly delivery of books, tapes etc. from their local library to people who are housebound.

The Doorstep Service is a county-wide service organised throughout Cambridgeshire by three area coordinators.

If you would like to volunteer to distribute books in Fulbourn, please email fulbourn_mill@yahoo.com, and I will forward your emails to Hilary.

  1. This is a good to hear! If people that are housebound can have access to books, tapes, etc. then they'll have a window to the world! Bravo.

  2. Thanks, Naomi! It really is a good idea, I did it myself for a year or so - it was good to be a housebound person's link to the world through books, and I met a lot of interesting people too.

    Talking about books, I'm getting through yours at a pace - it's very powerfully written!

    I strong recommend to anybody reading this to go to Naomi's blog - I find her "conversations" series especially interesting.
