Library home delivery service

Books on Wheels is a free delivery service that caters to City of Joondalup residents who are unable to reach a City Library because of frailty, disability or limited mobility. Receiving the Books on Wheels service is not necessarily related to the age of a person.

Available for loan

  • Books – large print or standard print
  • DVDs – movies, TV series or documentaries
  • Audiobooks
  • Magazines
  • Music CDs

An agreed number of preselected items are delivered fortnightly to your home by experienced library staff. All members also have access to download eBooks, audiobooks and magazines.

Eligibility guidelines

The service may be used by people who have health problems, disabilities or those who are facing a long recuperation period at home or in care. We are currently inundated with requests, and so must stick with our normal eligibility guidelines.

Customers must live in the City of Joondalup and:

  • be able to visit a library but are too frail to carry library items
    or
  • not able to visit a library in normal circumstances (when there is not a Covid19 pandemic)
    due to:

    • Illness or disability
    • Live in a residential establishment such as a nursing home
    • Older retired person, with no transport and no support mechanisms to access community services.

If you do not fit these criteria, you may like to make use of our digital services including eBooks, audiobooks and digital magazines.
