This #GoodNewsFriday we hear from Edenmore Nursing Home about their new home library service.
Edenmore Nursing Home is delighted to partner with Ilfracombe Library to welcome the Home Library Service through their doors and open their residents to the wonderful world of literature.
The Home Library Service is a bespoke book delivery service which is volunteer-led and fully-funded. It provides access to a library service for the residents, who are no longer able to go to the library for their books of choice.
Books are picked based on the residents' interests and hand-delivered every four weeks, giving those who receive them enough time to read through what they have chosen and then exchange for new ones.
As well as book, there are also audiobooks and tablets available to borrow, making the service accessible for those with sight loss and granting access to a wide range of books, newspapers, and magazines online.
