A WELL KEPT SECRET
Alsager Library offers a “Home delivery service” for anyone who cannot get to the Library. As the number of residents making use of it has dropped they are even looking for new people to serve! Ideal particularly for the housebound. Perhaps you have a loved one or friend or neighbour who could benefit.
All that is needed is for someone to telephone the Library. A few questions will be asked, type of books/authors preferred, if large is print needed, even audio books for the partially sighted or the blind.
Books will then be selected by one of the Library staff and a volunteer from RVS (formerly WRVS) will deliver the books on a Tuesday afternoon. They will also take back the previous lot. New Applicants will be informed when to expect their first delivery.
A record will be kept of books issued.
Anyone wishing to take advantage of this well-kept secret should contact the Library
