Books on Wheels
Q. What is Books on Wheels?
A. Books on Wheels is a volunteer service that delivers library materials to patrons who are unable to come to the Library for health or physical reasons. The service may be used on either a temporary or permanent basis. Magazines, books, large print books, paperback books, music CDs, books-on-tape or CD, DVDs and videos can all be delivered. Materials are selected according to patron preference. Patrons use their own equipment to listen to or view materials.
Q. What does the service cost?
A. The service is free! Delivery is provided by trained volunteers or Library staff in order to serve our community more comprehensively.
Q. How does the service work?
A. After you are signed up for Books on Wheels, you can set up a regular schedule for pick up and delivery with your volunteer. It is possible to request specific titles and authors, or rely on the volunteer to bring a small supply of books, audiotapes or videotapes. Books can also be renewed by phone, provided there are no other patron requests for the materials. You are responsible for any lost or damaged materials.
Q. How can I start the service?
A. For temporary or long-term delivery simply call the Community Program Coordinator, Lokey Lytjen at 733-2164 ext. 255 or for a quick interview. The Volunteer Coordinator will ask you for information about your reading preferences and any limitations that will affect your reading materials.
