Services to the Homebound

Homebound
Library Services Deliveries

Are
you or a loved one unable to come to the library?  The Outreach 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 Outreach staff member select
for them according to his/her interest. Outreach staff will make every attempt
to fill request with library materials but Book Express and DVD Express items
are not available for homebound deliveries.  

Outreach
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 Outreach staff.  Homebound
customers are not charged fines for lost or damaged items. 

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

How do I apply?
