Friendly face of the Home Library Service

EILEEN Osgood has been bringing literature to book lovers – and been a friendly face – for 15 years.

She has been a volunteer with the Wool Home Library Service, bringing books to people who can’t make it to the library.

Eileen originally joined the WRVS as a volunteer with her husband and was recently presented with the service’s Long Service Medal for her efforts.

“I have enjoyed every minute of it,” she said. “I have met so many interesting and fascinating people over the years, and being able to continue volunteering has helped me, too.

“The volunteer team here at Wool Library are fantastic, and it’s great to be part of both the library volunteers and the Home Library Service’s team.”

The Home Library Service is provided by Dorset Library Service and delivered by Royal Voluntary Service volunteers.

Books and talking books are chosen individually for each person and delivered every three weeks, providing not only fresh reading materials on a regular basis, but also a visit by a trusted volunteer.

Anyone unable to get to the library and who would like to receive a regular free delivery of books should get in touch by phoning the RVS office on 01305 236666, or emailing maria.jacobson@royalvoluntaryservice.
