Homebound Services for Individuals
Manitowoc Public Library provides materials for cardholders of any age that are unable to visit the Library due to an ongoing physical condition, illness, age or other qualifying condition that limits mobility. We offer material selection, delivery, and pickup services. Staff carefully select materials to reflect your interests. Volunteers are assigned to each patron for pickup and delivery services to your home or residential facility.
We can deliver large print or regular print books, audiobooks, magazines and music CDs.
We provide delivery and pickup services once every four weeks.
We ask you to fill out a Reader Preferences form that helps us determine the authors, genres, and types of materials you prefer. Specific requests are always encouraged.
Duties include picking up and delivering library materials to homebound patrons. Deliveries typically take about an hour to complete, and volunteers are scheduled once a month. We will do everything we can to make your experience rewarding and easy to manage. Visit our volunteer page here to access the application form and sign up today.
