Description

The Home Library Service offers a library lending service to people who are unable to visit a library due to a disability or illness. A designate picks up materials that are selected by either the designate or by library staff for the patron.

Home library service patrons can borrow a maximum of 50 items at a time with a loan period of six weeks, with one renewal. When the loan period has expired, the designate who checked out the items returns them to their local public library. Replacement fees will be charged for lost or damaged items.

For more information, contact staff at your local public library.
