“If you can read a book you can travel the world from your armchair”

Our Romance on the road branded van

Love is in the air for the home library customers of Kirklees this week, as they’re opening their doors to find surprise Valentine’s gifts as well as their usual choice of books.

Kirklees is one of only five areas taking part in a special promotion as part of the Mills & Boon Romance on the Road campaign and our local readers are loving it so far.

Up to 40 of our customers will be receiving parcels this week, and enjoying free books, chocolate and Valentine’s cards.

Our home library service team delivers 30,000 books or audio books direct to people who are housebound. People who use the home library service can be visually impaired, disabled, elderly, infirm or temporarily unable to access their local library. It can be a lifeline service for many people.

Our favourite comment so far has been from Mrs Eaves, who told us what reading means to her, as someone who is unable to get out of the house;  ” If you can read a book you can travel the world from your armchair.”
