Bookworms who find it difficult to get to a library can now read to their heart’s content thanks to a new service that has been launched in Hull.

The weekly library community collections service is being run at four venues across the city. The scheme has been launched by Hull City Council with volunteers running it by recording loans and book requests.

The council’s portfolio holder for culture, leisure, events and public well-being, Councillor Terry Geraghty, says it is hoped the service will prove to be invaluable to those who cannot get to a library. The service will cover adult fiction and non-fiction, junior fiction and large print books.

He says the venues have been chosen following consultation with library users and the managers of community venues.

On Mondays the service is being offered at the Lemon Tree Children’s Centre in North Bransholme from 3 to 4.30pm with the Windmill Children’s Centre on Burnham Road hosting daily sessions between 3pm and 4pm.

An hour long session will be held on Thursdays from 6pm at Kelvin Hall School, Bricknell Avenue, from February 12. From February 17 Tuesdays will see the service come to the Victoria Dock Village Hall between 3-4pm.
