Royal Voluntary Service and Explore York Libraries are working in partnership to deliver library books and IT support in your own home.

You can choose from a wide variety of fiction and non fiction in a range of different formats including regular print, large print and audio books. These will be delivered to your home on a regular basis.

A Royal Voluntary Service volunteer will visit you to discuss what types of books you enjoy reading and organise a regular time to visit.

Give them a ring and they’ll make an appointment to visit when it’s convenient to you.

Help with technology

The RVS volunteers can also assist people with downloading e-books and accessing the library online catalogue. They can also bring Hudl tablets if you don’t have a device.

Volunteer with the RVS

Do you have any spare time and want to make a difference to people’s lives?

Sarah Wallis of the York RVS said: “Volunteering with Royal Voluntary Service won’t just help transform the lives of people, it will change your life too.

“Just a couple hours of volunteering makes you feel great. You’ll be amazed what effect one conversation, one laugh from someone who’s spent days alone or a heartfelt thank you can have.”

If you are interested please get in touch – see the panel for contact details.
