DoCare Home library Service

 

The Geelong Regional Library Corporation and DoCare Geelong provide a home library service for senior citizens who are unable to access public libraries through any other means. The service is delivered free of charge by volunteers from DoCare. If you are not a senior please go to the Geelong Libraries Home Library Service page for further information.



The DoCare Home Library Service offers:

  • Loans including Large Print and Audio Books, Music CDs, DVDs, Reservations and Inter-Library loans (fees may apply)
  • Access to quarterly newsletters, Genre Author lists and New Titles lists
  • A regular personalised service from a friendly volunteer
  • Library items selected by volunteers considering the client’s individual tastes and requirements
  • Volunteers check for overdue items and the availability of items on reserve, in addition to delivering items to the client and collecting them for return
The DoCare Home Library service is available to senior citizens who:
  • Are unable to visit their local library branch due to temporary or permanent illness or disability
  • Are confined to a home due to full-time care of a sick or disabled person
  • Do not have friends or relatives able to assist them with library needs
This Service is dependent on the number of DoCare volunteers available and may be limited at some times.
