Happy Birthday HLS! [Part 1]

HLS 65th Anniversary party, July 2013Westminster’s Home Library Service is 65 years old! Since 1948 we’ve been visiting customers in their homes, making sure that people who can’t get out (whether they be ill, elderly, disabled or caring for someone who is) can get the books they want and need.

We celebrated part 1 of the 65th anniversary with a health and wellbeing information morning, including a complimentary hand massage, at Church Street Library. We followed this with a 1948 quiz, lunch and birthday cake with a glass of bubbly.

HLS 65th Anniversary party, July 2013Our readers weren’t put off by the deluge of rain that morning and a good time was had by all, meeting each other for the first time as well as finding out about other Westminster services available to housebound people.

If you or someone you know would like to use the Home Library Service, please get in touch.
