​Our Home Library Service is available to housebound residents who, by reason of age, illness or other incapacity, are unable to visit the library personally.

The Home Library Service provides:

  • A personalised service to individuals who are unable to access the library because of illness or disability;

  • Bulk loans to residential facilities; such as hostels, nursing homes and hospitals;

  • Service to residents that provide full-time care; and 

  • A temporary service for residents convalescing (in recovery from ill health or treatments).

While membership of the Canterbury-Bankstown libraries is free to all residents and non-residents, Home Library Service membership is only available to individuals or institutions that are within the borders of our City. No age restrictions apply.

Membership requirements

All people who apply for the Home Library Service are required to provide a written declaration from either a doctor or other health care professional stating that for medical/p​hysical reasons they are in need of a housebound service.​
