What is it?
Library materials may be delivered to your residence once per month. Marion Public Library provides this service free of charge to adults living in Marion County who have difficulty visiting the library or who live in a retirement or nursing home.
How does it work?
Call the library at (740) 387-0992 to request Outreach Services Home Delivery. You will be contacted to be registered for the service. At registration we will discuss the types of materials you'd like to borrow from the library, what kind of things you like to read, your favorite authors, etc. Library staff will select items to be delivered on your next delivery date. All items are expected to be returned in the same condition as they were delivered.
What can I borrow?
Books, large print books, magazines, audiobooks on CD, and DVDs are available.
What if I forget to return items?
Outreach Services patrons do not accrue fines. If you can't find an item, it may be renewed to give you more time to look for it.
We thank the Marion County Council on Aging for their continued support of the Library’s Outreach Services Home Delivery service. We are able to enhance our Large Print and audiobook collections to better serve the needs of our Outreach Services population.
