Did you know that there are far more services available from your local Library and ways to use the Library service than the traditional method of being able to go in person to choose a really good book to read?
For example, Hertfordshire libraries offer a service specially designed for people who can't travel to their local library; volunteers will bring books of your choice to you at home once a month. If you prefer to read your books online the Library also provides online services, such as downloadable books which you can access from home as a library member.
To find out more, or to enquiry about the Home library service please visit https://www.hertfordshire.gov.uk/services/libraries-and-archives
For young people aged between 14 - 24 who are keen to volunteer in their community there are opportunities to be a Reading Hack and promote children’s services within the library. To find out more visit
There is so much going on in Hertford Library for all ages and new participants are always welcome. A selection of activities are, for example:
- Regular free Baby Rhyme Time (Mondays at 11am)
- Toddler Tales Sessions (Thursdays at 10.30am)
- Basic PC and tablet tutor sessions for £7 for an hour.
