What is Homebound Delivery?

This service delivers books, audiobooks, music and DVDs to patrons who reside in NOPL’s special district service area and who are unable to visit the library either temporarily or permanently because of disability, illness or age.

How does it work?

We offer two types of services for homebound delivery: Recommended Reads, where NOPL librarians select books for you based on your interests, and Holds Only Delivery where you place library hold requests through the library’s online catalog.

When are books delivered?

On every third Friday of the month, NOPL staff will deliver library materials to your residence and pick up what you have finished. In the event of bad weather or unforseen circumstances we may postpone delivery to another day or week.

How do I enroll?
