Due to weather events Elma Turner Library Pop-Up and Stoke Library are closing at 4:30pm Wednesday 17 August.

Home delivery

We offer a free service to residents of Nelson who are housebound, either temporarily or permanently, through a major illness, disability or advanced years, and have no access to transport.

"Business as normal for existing Customers & Volunteers while Elma Turner Library is closed." — Home Delivery Team (9/6/22)

Items are selected by library staff and delivered to the housebound person's home by a volunteer, usually once a fortnight. Books, magazines, talking books, CDs and DVDs are available. We can also help you download eBooks and audiobooks onto your device.

If you are a housebound person, or you know of someone who is, please contact us to discuss this service.

For all enquiries about the home delivery service , please contact the home delivery staff on 546 0412 or email library@ncc.govt.nz.
