Access for All

We provide resources and facilities in a variety of different formats to cater for a wide range of needs.

Housebound Library Service

If you are housebound and have problems visiting the library, then our Housebound Service may be ideal for you.

We have staff who will bring books and other library items to you every 4 weeks.

The service includes access to the whole range of library resources including books, talking books, large print books, music cassettes and CDs, videos, in English and in Welsh. We can also access information and request items for you.

For more information contact us via e-mail library@wrexham.gov.uk or telephone Wrexham Library on 01978 292090.

Large Print Books

Do you enjoy reading but because of failing eyesight find it difficult to read ordinary print?

Why not try reading Large Print Books?

We have a selection of large print books in English and Welsh for you to borrow at all our libraries. New titles are added to stock regularly.

Please ask staff for help if you want a particular title and you can't find it on the shelves. If it is available in large print format, we will do our best to get it for you.

Talking Books

If you have failing eyesight and find it difficult to read a book why not listen to a book instead.

Talking books on standard cassette tapes are available for loan. We now have a growing collection on CD too.

New titles are added to stock regularly.

Our collection of talking books is kept at Wrexham Library but you can request a title from any of our libraries free of charge.

Ask at your local library for further details about talking books and large print books.
