We provide home delivery service of library materials to disabled, elderly, and homebound customers who are unable to visit the library.
We can provide you with regular and large print books as well as audio books and DAISY discs. We also have a limited number of Victor Readers (DAISY machines) that may be borrowed for up to one year.
Who Is Eligible For Home Services?
Home delivery service is available to any person in Richmond, regardless of age, who is confined to a private residence, other residential facility or hospital because of a physical or visual disability, injury or illness lasting more than three months.
How Does Home Services Delivery Work?
Deliveries are made once a month to each customer on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday, depending upon the area of Richmond in which you live. Home Services will provide you with reading material based on your reading interests.
How Do I Register?
To register with Home Services, you or a family member, friend or caregiver can call the Home Services department, located at the Brighouse Branch at 604-231-6406. A staff member is available from 9:30 am - 1:30 pm Mondays and Tuesdays, but you may leave a message at any time.
The Library’s Audio Books service provides special library materials such as taped-book sets, books on MP3 CD and DAISY discs of full-length books. Audio Books are available to those Richmond residents who are unable to read regular print due to a visual or physical disability. Please register with us first by calling 604-231-6406. Audio books can be borrowed in the library or we can arrange for Home Service delivery if you are homebound.
