Hawkesbury Library Service has recently resumed housebound delivery services for senior residents that have been cut off from their normal support network of family, friends or caregivers due to the pandemic.
The free delivery service was originally offered to existing housebound members, identified as having a disability or chronic illness and unable to access the Library’s e-resources or those isolated and particularly vulnerable. Hawkesbury Library Service
The service has now been extended to residents, living alone in the Hawkesbury Local Government Area, who are aged 65 years or older. Participants will be provided with a selection of items delivered to their door by Library staff while restrictions are in place. Staff will contact each patron before visiting to determine that they are safe and well, and that material will be delivered without contact.
To find out more about the service if you or someone you know has become isolated and/or vulnerable because of lockdown contact the Library to check eligibility by either calling 4560 4462 or emailing [email protected] Hawkesbury Library Service
Members can also access Library eResources including eBooks, Audiobooks, eMagazines and video streaming via the library’s website: hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/library
