Do you like reading? Are you running short of reading material? Search is working with Borderline Books to deliver free items that have been donated by individuals, charity shops and publishers. Search staff and some volunteers are crisscrossing the west end each week so one of them would be able to drop off a couple of books and collect of swap them every so often..
They can’t guarantee your exact choice of title but if you tell them your favourite authors or the type of books you like reading, then they will do their best to choose something you will enjoy.
You can borrow DVDs in the same way – there is a small selection of titles. For more information please contact Adam at Search on 0191 273 7443
They may also be able to offer the same service in the East so get in touch.
