Home Library Service
Volunteers deliver books to those who can’t get to a library. They are a friendly face who can stop by once every three weeks to bring books or CDs and spend some time to share their own stories. It is run by Oxfordshire Libraries but would not be possible without the support of volunteers.  Speak to the staff at the library if you or someone you know would like this service.

Go to www.oxforshire.gov.uk and search for Home Library service if you would like to help.
 
Reminiscence
Reminiscence sets are resources designed to spark conversation and memories. Many of these personal memories are based on work, home, festivals, leisure and family life. The boxes and packs include photos from Oxfordshire History Centre that reflect the people, places, transport, landscape and work-places that have defined local lives over the last century.

Reminiscence Boxes: about 10-15 items, mainly picture books on a variety of themes, sometimes supplemented with a DVD, music CD, postcards or facsimile artefacts that can enable people to connect with their memories.

Reminiscence Packs: about 2-3 items consisting of a larger picture book such as the Robert Opie Scrapbooks covering a decade of the twentieth century. Packs are in an A3 plastic portfolio case with a handle making them easily portable.

Pictures to Share: books cover a variety of themes such as pets, travel, countryside and shopping. They are mostly pictures and a small amount of text and are ideal to  develop a sense of togetherness with someone who is finding communication difficult.
