Help needed with the Home Library Service in Dorchester

Are you a keen reader? Can’t bear to be without a good book? Then you will understand how important the Home Library Service can be to people in our community who are not able to get to their local library.

Dorchester Library & Learning Centre has a very active Home Library Service, with Royal Voluntary Service volunteers delivering books and talking books to housebound people in the area on a 3 weekly basis.

We are looking for more volunteers to join our team who would be interested in choosing books and talking books for our clients, including identifying material for customers to borrow on the Library Service’s on-line public access catalogue. Training and support will be provided by library staff.

If this sounds like you, we would love to hear from you! Please get in touch with Maria Jacobson, RVS Home Library Service Manager for Dorset, on 01305 236666 or e-mail

This service is provided by Dorset Library Service, and delivered by RVS volunteers.
