Free library deliveries
CITY of Swan residents who are housebound can get books delivered to their door free.
Mayor Mick Wainwright said the service was available to people who were members of one of the City’s libraries and met the criteria.
“Being housebound for any reason can be difficult,” he said. “But with the City’s Housebound Service, everyone can access a huge range of resources, like books, magazines, audio books, music CDs and DVDs.
“To be eligible, people need to live in the City of Swan and be physically unable to access one of our six library branches.
Altone Ward councillor David Fardig said the service relied on volunteers to help.
“Our Housebound Service volunteers assist with selection of resources and delivering these to the library members,” he said.
“We are always grateful to have more volunteers and if you think you could help, please contact the Swan Volunteer Resource Centre by calling 9278 9690 or email email@example.com. gov.au.”
