BOOK lovers in North Devon who can't get to their local library are being made aware of a little known service provided by volunteers from the Women's Royal Voluntary Service (WRVS).The volunteers, in partnership with Devon Library Service, deliver books to the elderly, infirm or disabled.Groups can be found throughout the county, including Torrington, South Molton, Bideford and Northam, Barnstaple, Braunton, Ilfracombe, Combe Martin and Lynton.Most of the groups are looking for new clients, especially in villages and isolated places, who would like to join the book service.Books, both in large print and small, are available, together with tapes and CDs.Clients get the pick of the books and can keep then over an extended period without any fines.Talking books are especially popular with the visually impaired and in Bideford, th volunteers work with the Macular Degeneration Society and the Stroke Club.The service has been in existence for many years, but still little known.Anyone who would like to take the book service should call their local library, or ring WRVS project manager Pam Mayall on (01404) 871397.
