The Outreach Services office will contact the patron requesting homebound service to clarify the patron's needs. If the patron does not have a family member, friend, or neighbor who is able to provide retrieval and delivery of library materials, the library will make an effort to match the patron with a library volunteer who can do so. Library cards are usually kept on file at the Circulation desk at the most conveniently located branch.
Library materials checked out to homebound borrowers have an extended loan period. To renew items, call Outreach Services at 427-7717.
Homebound cards are good for four years.
