Mosman Library provides services for people with special needs including those who are housebound, people with disabilities, and people with language difficulties. In some instances a medical certificate is required to take advantage of these services.
These services include sound recordings, talking books, large print books and community language books.
Materials are available from the State Library of NSW Special Needs Centre including captioned videos, talking books, large print and reading development material (tape and text).
Home Library Service
This service is available for Mosman residents who are physically unable to visit the Library. Material is selected by a librarian and delivered to the resident’s home. Volunteers play a vital role in delivering this service. For more information contact the Home Library Service Librarian.
Literacy & ESL Collection
The Library holds a small Literacy Collection suitable for young adults and adults with literacy and numeracy problems and for English as a Second Language students. This collection includes graded readers, books with tapes and books with video.
Loans of community language books can be arranged through the State Library of NSW Multicultural Service. Multimedia language learning kits are available for loan for those wishing to learn a range of languages.
