Home Library Service (HLS)

Bedale Community Library supports this valuable community service, which is administered by North Yorkshire County Council. You may be eligible to receive the service if, because of ill health or disability, you find it difficult to visit the library or carry books, or if you are a carer. The service is for people of all ages and offers free access to books (including large print), audio books, DVDs, music CDs, children’s books and information. There is a free delivery service to your home every two weeks. If you prefer you can have your books selected for a friend or relative to collect and return them.

Contact Bedale Library for more details:  01609 534573
