This is a program of home delivery of library materials for Oceanside residents who are unable to visit one of our library locations due to disability. To receive this service, one must have a current library card and fill out a Homebound Services Application. Both matters may be handled by a family member or surrogate if the applicant desires.
The Homebound Coordinator will contact the applicant to explain how to request books and other materials. A schedule of delivery will be set up, depending upon the individual's needs, and on the availability of our volunteer drivers. Materials available to homebound library borrowers include fiction and non-fiction books—both regular size and in large print, audio books on CD (and some books on cassette), music CDs, and magazines.
Please note: the program relies upon volunteers to pick up and deliver books and materials. Our best efforts are made to select appropriate materials and deliver them in a timely manner. Volunteers to the program are always welcome!
