New HOMEWORDS Library Service Launches in East Ayrshire

East Ayrshire Leisure has launched a new free door to door Library service to residents of East Ayrshire.

The Homewords service is available to residents of East Ayrshire who are unable to visit a community or mobile library owing to age, disability or long term illness which normally confines them to their home. Users of this service will have access to a range of reading material including fiction, non-fiction, large print and audio books.

Councillor Douglas Reid, Chair of East Ayrshire Leisure and Leader of East Ayrshire Council said “We are delighted to be able to offer this bespoke service to residents of East Ayrshire who are not able to access our mobile or community libraries. Users can discuss their reading preferences with a library assistant who will then select reading materials based on their interests and deliver them to their door.”

If you are confined to your home for whatever reason and wish to be considered or just want to find out more, please contact Lesley Harrow on 01563 554303 or email
