Local libraries are are now delivering books directly to readers’ doors.

The Books on Wheels service allows existing and new members to borrow physical items, while the Busselton and Dunsborough Libraries are closed to the public amid coronavirus restrictions.

Library services co-ordinator Carol Anderson said members could borrow 10 items at a time, with deliveries once a month.

“We have a great collection of items to choose from including fiction, non-fiction, large print books, audiobooks, DVDs, children’s books and books in other languages,” she said.

“Our Baby Bounce, Storytime, Lego Club and junior book club have all moved on to an online format, and we have thousands of digital items on offer online.”

“Books and literacy resources are being valued now more than ever, and we wanted to ensure community members who don’t have access to online resources could still receive library items.”

Books on Wheels is available for anyone who lives in the City of Busselton region, and those who are not already library members can join over the phone.

To join the library or to inquire about the delivery service, phone 9781 1777 or visit busseltonlibraries.com.au.
