Services to the Homebound

Homebound Library Services Deliveries
Are you or a loved one unable to come to the library? The Mobile Services Department provides free year-round service to qualified homebound residents of Charles County.

Who qualifies for homebound deliveries? Individuals who:

  • Have a medical condition that limits their ability to visit the library; OR
  • Are unable to leave home (due to an illness, disability, injury, etc.); OR
  • Reside in an assisted living, nursing or retirement community.
  • Qualified customers must reside in Charles County.

How does homebound delivery work?
Customers can request specific titles and authors or have an Mobile Services staff member select for them according to his/her interest. Mobile Services staff will make every attempt to fill request with library materials but Book Express and DVD Express items are not available for homebound deliveries.

Mobile Services staff will establish a specific day and time each month for the delivery visit. This is a year-round service, staff will do their best to accommodate for missed visits due to Holidays.

All items will be delivered and returned by the Mobile Services staff. Homebound customers are not charged fines for lost or damaged items.

Moblie Services visits may be canceled if the Charles County Public Schools announce a delayed opening or closure due to inclement weather.
