Books by Mail

Books & Materials for the Homebound is a free service which provides books and other Library materials delivered via the U.S. Mail to people who are homebound.

Who Qualifies?

• People of any age who are visually or physically impaired and/or have difficulty moving around.

• Any disabled person, whether the disability is short- or long-term.

How the Homebound Service works:

Upon registering in the program, you specify particular authors, subjects and/or genres of books you would like to read.  You may also give us preferences as to music, DVDs, books on CD, magazines or any other Library materials of interest.  When you would like to request items, simply call the Help Desk at 986-1047, ext. 3.   You may request specific items, or ask us to select materials for you based on the preferences you have specified.   The materials will arrive in a special pouch, which you will use to return the items to the Library.  Postage is free, and there are no fines for overdue materials.

To Register:

• Call the Help Desk at 845-986-1047, ext. 3, to request that a registration form be mailed to you.  You may also download the form for Homebound Service here.  Alternately, please visit the Help Desk and a staff member will be glad either to provide you with a form, or to fill it out for you.
