Outreach Services

Outreach Services bring the library to you!

Outreach Services are designed to bring the Library to those who are not able to make it to the physical library location. These services can include library material delivery, and events/programs.

For the individual in our Outreach program;
Each month a volunteer will deliver library materials to the individual’s home. Materials can include large print books, DVDs, audiobooks, magazines, and CDs. These deliveries will be catered to the individual’s preference of genre, author, and number of materials.

For the group in our Outreach program;
Along with a monthly delivery of library materials, our Outreach Coordinator will be able to host a group event in your nursing home, assisted living facility, extended care facility, transition home, etc. Events depend upon the number of participants and their abilities; expect events such as trivia, crafts, board games, and fun creative play.

If you are interested in signing up for Outreach Services, please contact the Outreach Coordinator at 740.852.9543.
