Outreach and Home Delivery

Outreach Services Specialist: Julia Bachmann

Ohio County Public Library’s Outreach Services program provides home delivery of library materials to temporarily or permanently homebound patrons throughout Ohio County. Being an outreach patron means that books and library materials are delivered DIRECTLY TO YOUR DOOR. If you live in a local high rise or retirement home, Ohio County Public Library outreach services will visit your facility twice each month, according to a regular schedule. Outreach patrons in private residences simply call to schedule a convenient delivery time.
Schools and day care centers are also eligible for outreach services. Monthly book selections are delivered according to a regular monthly schedule.



Any borrowable library material can be delivered to you including:
Books—regular or large print
Audio books
Music CD’s

Patrons may request specific items, or the outreach services specialist can choose items according to each patron’s preferences.


A full range of library services are available to adult and children’s outreach patrons.

These services include:
On-line catalog
Readers advisory
Renewals, requests and reserves
Reference assistance
Inter-Library loan
E-reader assistance
Book Club facilitation or assistance
Notary service
Extended borrowing—Outreach patrons have a four week borrowing period.
PLUS fine free borrowing!

For information, or to apply for services, please print complete and mail the Outreach Services Application from the link in the navigation bar, or call the Ohio County Public Library and speak to the Outreach Services Specialist, Julia Bachmann.
