Home Libraries Service

HLSThe Camden Home Library Service (HLS) delivers books to people who are housebound due to a range of health related issues. The service is currently under review due to the local government cuts.

The Home Library Service project paired MDes Service Design Innovation students from London College of Communication with HLS frontline officers who explored the future of the HLS through service design thinking methods and tools, engaging different stakeholders, including the public and Age UK. They co-designed how the HLS may be reconfigured in the future through new relationships and technology, exploring opportunities for the service to be utilised to address other societal problems such as loneliness and related social care issues.
