If you, or someone you know, are unable to come to the library due to a disability or circumstance that prevents mobility, the library will deliver materials right to your door.
Who is eligible?
Stickney, Forest View, and Central Stickney residents who are permanently or temporarily homebound and unable to visit the library due to a handicap or medical circumstance.
When do deliveries take place?
The outreach librarian will call the patron and schedule a time for delivery/pick up, not to exceed more than one delivery/pick up per week.
What materials can be checked out and delivered?
Materials in all formats can be checked out. The patron can request specific items or have a librarian pick items for the patron based on the patron’s preferences. The library’s standard borrowing limits apply, with the exception of late fines, which will not be charged to the homebound patron. Homebound patrons will be responsible for lost or damaged items.
How does one apply?
Patrons who want to have homebound service must have a library card in good standing and will have to complete a simple application with our library.
Would you like to volunteer?
We are looking for volunteers to accompany our librarian on the brief deliveries to our homebound patrons. If you are interested, please call 708-749-1050 x 120, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or come to the Reference Desk.
