Free li­brary de­liv­er­ies

Ellenbrook Advocate - - NEWS -

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 swan.vol­un­teers@swan.wa.”
