As Thurrock’s mobile library closes on Thursday, Homelink service expands

THURROCK’S popular Homelink library service – aimed at those who have difficulties accessing the borough’s libraries – is being expanded. This is to ensure that people who use the Council’s current mobile library service, which closes on Monday 2 July, will not lose out.

Homelink is a free service for people who find it difficult to travel to, or have physical mobility issue which inhibits access to their local library and its services.

Difficulties could include carrying heavy books, sight impairment or medical conditions.

An earlier call for volunteers proved so successful that Homelink rounds are available at most libraries. All volunteers have received specialist training.
