The Hills Shire Library Service is now offering a temporary free book delivery service to Hills Shire residents aged 65 years or older.

Participants will be provided with a selection of up to 10 items delivered to their door every four weeks.

“This is a wonderful initiative aimed at helping some of our most vulnerable residents stay connected to their local library during this unprecedented time,” Mayor of The Hills Shire, Dr Michelle Byrne said.

“Our libraries are one of our most valuable resources we have here in The Hills and this brand new service ensures our residents can keep safe, while accessing library material during strict isolation measures,” Mayor Byrne added.  

To find out more and the eligibility criteria for the Stay Home and Read service, visit The Hills Shire Council Library website, www.thehills.nsw.gov.au/Library.

To add to this, The Hills Shire Library Service has launched its Virtual Baby Bounce online sessions. The first of a five-part series took place on Tuesday on The Hills Shire Library Service’s Facebook page.

These sessions include songs, rhymes and activities designed to build literacy skills. It’s also a great way for parents and guardians to enjoy time with their babies during strict isolation measures, which are in place as part of Public Health Orders issued by the State Government.

You can tune in for a Virtual Baby Bounce session on The Hills Shire Library Facebook page every Tuesday at 10am.
