The Home Library Service is available for borrowers who are unable to visit their local library due to illness, disability or limited mobility and have no one who can visit the library on their behalf.
This is a free service available for community members who would like assistance bringing the benefits of the library into their home.
Borrowers are connected with a volunteer that chooses, delivers and returns books and other library items based on the preferences of the borrower.
To find out more about the home library service phone (07) 5475 8989 or use the libraries contact form.

Libraries are offering home delivery of library items to Sunshine Coast residents who are considered to be at greater risk of serious illness from COVID-19.
If you are in mandatory quarantine or currently feeling unwell, let the library know and your delivery can be delayed until later.
Who is eligible for this service?
Any Sunshine Coast Libraries member living in the region aged over 70, or otherwise considered to be at greater risk of serious illness from COVID-19. If you are unsure if this applies to you, call library staff on 5475 8989.
How it works?
When you contact the library a staff member will confirm the type of items you are looking for and will make a selection on your behalf.
They will confirm with you when the items can be delivered to your home.
The items will be dropped off at an agreed location outside your home to ensure appropriate social distancing.
The loan period is six (6) weeks and capped at 20 items.
