Outreach Services

Touching Lives through the Library

We recognize that not everyone can make it to the library to check out materials due to weather conditions, temporary injury or a permanent disability. That is why we have created a homebound delivery service to bring the library to you.

Outreach services delivers materials to you at your home.

Each week our Outreach Services Coordinator or a volunteer will drop off library materials to individual homes, nursing homes, assisted living and extended care facilities. Materials can include DVD movies, audiobooks (CD-ROM), large-print books and magazines.
 

Do you need a helping Hand?

If you would like the library to bring materials to you through the outreach program please contact Ruth Gorman, at 740-852-9543.
 

Visually Impaired Assistance

We also assist those with visual disabilities by helping them apply for services through VOICEcorps, a reading service over the Internet or through radio transmission.
