Home Library Service

What Is Home Library Service?

If you are unable to get to the Library because of a physical disability and you live in the District of North Vancouver, you can request Home Library Service. The Home Service Librarian can choose a selection of large print or regular print books and audiovisual materials based on your interests or you can request specific titles.

Home Library Service deliveries are scheduled for Wednesday or Thursday afternoons.

To find out more about our Home Library Service, please call the Home Service Librarian Heather Goodwin at 604-990-5800, ext. 8124 or contact her by email at heatherg@nvdpl.ca.

The Library also schedules monthly Library Afternoons on Wednesdays and Thursdays to bring books to homebound residents at each of the following complexes:

  • Capilano Lions House (in conjunction with the Capilano Community Services Seniors’ Hub)

A deposit collection of large print books is delivered to Evergreen House at Lions Gate Hospital each month and the Evergreen House library volunteers take a tailored selection around to the residents each week.
