Home Delivery Service

About Our Home Delivery Service

We offer free delivery of library materials to persons who live within our service area and are physically unable to visit the library.

Library volunteers deliver to residents in their homes, care centers and retirement communities. Any of our circulating materials are available for delivery, including:

  • Books
  • Large print books
  • Magazines
  • DVD and Blu-ray movies
  • Audiobooks
  • Music CDs

In addition, we offer book recommendations, reference services, and applications for the Talking Book Program through Ohio Library for the Blind and Print Disabled and the State Library of Ohio.


You Qualify for Home Delivery Services If:

  • You are unable to come to the library due to illness, disability, low vision or non-driver status (senior). We are also able to arrange for temporary delivery service due to weather conditions, surgery recovery, illness, etc.
  • You must live within our service area: south of Henderson Road, north of West Fifth Avenue, east of Riverside Drive and west of 315 [Google Map].
  • You must complete a Home Delivery Application

How It Works

  • Once you have submitted an application, a librarian will contact you to discuss your reading preferences and schedule your first delivery.
  • Deliveries are on Wednesdays. Deliveries occur once a month. Library volunteers deliver and pick up items.
  • We select library materials based on personal preferences and maintains a confidential record of reading preferences and checkout history to aid in material selection.
  • We respect your preferences regarding content such as explicit sex, rough language or violence, but ultimately exercise no censorship in item selection.
  • On your scheduled delivery day, a library volunteer delivers materials in a red UAPL library delivery bag. To return library materials, place the bag in a designated location and a volunteer will pick it up and drop off new materials.
  • Home delivery patrons are exempt from fines, however individuals are responsible for lost or damaged items.
