Cold weather and winter ills can keep elderly people indoors. Don’t forget that the libraries in Blenheim and Picton have a special service for house-bound or convalescing people who cannot get into the library to choose their own books.
The Marlborough District Libraries not only have a selection of large print and talking books but the house-bound service, run by the Friends of the Library, can deliver a selection of books, magazines, talking books, music or jig-saws to those who request it.
Arrangements can be made to supply a selection of books to elderly people living in outlying areas too. Please contact the library to discuss your needs.
