Homebound Services

Are you sick and tired of not being able to visit the library to borrow materials because of a medical condition that’s got you down? Let us help you by mailing your materials to your home! Eligible patrons can request specific titles or rely on a librarian to select materials based on your preferences free of charge!

Eligible patrons are those who are unable to come to the library due to an illness or disability and a doctor’s signature or note is required.
