Introducing our Remote Reading Scheme

With so many older people now confined to home and deprived of their visits to the library and many other forms of social contact, the coming months are set to be an extremely lonely time for many people.

As a gesture to the community, we are launching a remote reading scheme. If you know an elderly person who loves books and would benefit from having somebody read to them for 20-30 minutes a day, completely free of charge, we will be happy to read books over the phone.

For more information, or if you would like to volunteer to join our team of readers, please send your details via a direct message (please don’t put any personal contact details in comments).

Let’s share some good words in this time of challenges!

To register an interest in receiving this service for yourself or a family member, or to volunteer as a reader, please send an email to or telephone Allan Longshadow on 07985 521596.
