Anyone who is vulnerable/shielding and missing their library books can ring Durham County Council Community Together Team on 03000 260 260. Arrangements will be made to drop off a small selection of your preferred type of reading.
The Community Hub is also offering a reading service to callers as part of their online library service Borrowbox.
A selection of books, alongside good news and local news stories from the library’s enewspaper, emagazine and ecomics collections are on offer for residents to listen to at home.
Fans of the reading service can also take advantage of a ‘lucky dip’ doorstep book offer which will see fiction, non-fiction or children’s books delivered to their door for them to keep.
Anyone wanting to access the hub’s check in and chat or reading service should call 03000 260 260 or eamil firstname.lastname@example.org
