Home library service

Free delivery

If you're a person with a disability or an older person who experiences challenges getting to and from your nearest library, the City of Sydney's home library service is here to help you borrow books or other items.

Once you have joined the service, a library staff member will be in touch to discuss the types of books and/or other resources you wish to borrow. Staff will then deliver items directly to your home, free of charge. They will also collect items that need to be returned. Items available for public loan include:

  • books
  • audio books
  • CDs
  • videos
  • magazines
  • DVDs
  • books in other languages.

To help you choose items, the library catalogue is available online.

Your library membership card will also provide you with online access to a range of databases and back issues of newspapers, including The Sydney Morning Herald.
