Free Home Delivery Service for Meals on Wheels Clients!

The library in partnership with Renmark Meals on Wheels offers a free library home delivery service to Meals on Wheels clients. We are very fortunate that Meals on Wheels volunteers are keen to help us deliver library resources to those that find it difficult to visit the library themselves. We would love to hear from anyone who currently receives Meals on Wheels and is interested in borrowing library DVDs, books, audio books, magazines or CDs. Let us know what interests you and we can order books, DVDs and other resources from the millions of items available in the state library network and deliver them to you.
