To help library staff choose the most appropriate material a reader profile with your preferences will be compiled.
Depending on where you live, deliveries are made either by a Friend of Cairns Libraries or by a member of the library team. Friends of Cairns Libraries visit Homebound clients at a mutually acceptable time, and deliveries made by Library staff are made on a fortnightly basis. Any changes to delivery times will be negotiated with Homebound clients.
A Homebound library member may borrow up to ten items at a time, for three weeks. Loan extensions may be arranged if a reservation has not yet been placed on the material. Unavailable items can be reserved or borrowed from other libraries through the inter-library loans system. Replacement costs may be incurred for any materials not returned to the library.
Cairns Libraries provides the same services to all Library Members. The Homebound Library Service delivers regular and large print books, magazines, and audio-visual items such as talking books, videocassettes and CDs. Please contact your library or your Friend of the library if you would like to request specific items or information.
