Books on Wheels and Library Bus

Nedlands Library provides a free home delivery service and a Library Bus Service to Nedlands Residents who are unable to visit the library independently. 

Books on Wheels 

After an initial consultation with our library staff, Books on Wheels clients are matched with one of our friendly volunteers who select from a range of library items. Up to 12 library items are delivered fortnightly on Tuesdays to the client’s door and previous items are collected and returned to the library. Download the flyer for details. To see if your address is eligible for the Books on Wheels, check the Nedlands area map! 

Library Bus 

Nedlands residents unable to visit the library due to lack of transport but who are otherwise mobile are welcome to join our Library Bus service. There are two separate Library Bus routes that run on alternating Monday mornings. Clients are collected from their home or a designated location and driven to the library by our volunteers where they can select library items and enjoy morning tea. Download the flyer for details. To see if your address is eligible for the Library Bus, check the Nedlands area map!
