Improved Library Outreach Service in Brent

Now that we have finally got the various legal and property complications from the Libraries Transformation Project out the way, I am hoping that people will pay more attention to the positive aspects of Brent Library service.  Among these is an enhanced outreach service for very frail or disabled people to bring books to their home.  We have successfully recruited new drivers, and the April deliveries in this service went up by 50%.  In the context of the cuts, I often here people saying that the most vulnerable should be prioritised.  This is an example of such prioritisation in action.

It's all very well and laudable delivering books, but how are you replacing the social aspects that libraries gave the elderly and vulnerable? Will your drivers sit and chat to the lonely for an hour or two? Doubt it.
