Homebound Delivery

What is it?

We will deliver library materials to your residence every two weeks or once per month depending on your needs.  You can tell us your general preferences for library materials, or give us specific requests and we will strive to fulfill them.  Marion Public Library provides this service free of charge to adults living within the city limits who have difficulty visiting the library or who live in a retirement or nursing home.

How does it work?

Start by calling the library at (740) 387-0992 to request homebound delivery.  When you are being registered, let us know what types of materials you'd like to borrow from the library.  Library staff will select your items and then deliver the materials right to your door!

What can I borrow?

Almost all library materials are available to homebound patrons.  Books, magazines, audiobooks, and DVDs can all be delivered to patrons on this program.

What if I forget to return items?

Homebound patrons do not accrue fines.  If you can't find an item, let us know so we can give you more time to look for it.  All items are expected to be returned in the same condition as they were delivered.
