Libraries do change lives

Yesterday we celebrated the 20th anniversary of Library Link, a service for anyone who has difficulty getting to their library because of age, disability or ill health.

Library Link provides a service for those who cannot access the service due to physical constraints, organising transport and a volunteer who assists customers from their front door to the library and back again after their visit. In the library customers are free to select their own books, talking books and other materials and then can join other Link members for a cup of tea and a chat

Library link has proven so successful that it was extended across every library in the Capital and is now regarded as a core part of the Libraries and Information Service.
