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. Please contact the Volunteer Office at 427-7700 ext. 7615 for more information.
Library materials checked out to homebound borrowers have an extended loan period and are exempt from overdue fines.
Homebound cards are good for four years.
