Outreach/Homebound Service

We provide a free Community Outreach/Homebound service to customers living in Te Kuiti who are unable to visit the Library due to illness, a physical inability to leave your home or extreme physical difficulty in carrying books home. A Library Team member will select books on your behalf and deliver them to your home as well as collect books to be returned.
