CHANGES TO CHILDREN'S OUTREACH SERVICES, BEGINNING SEPTEMBER 2014
Lee Ann Cleary, the OCPL Children's Specialist, will be taking over all outreach story times as of September. I will continue to prepare and deliver books to all children's facilities that wish to receive books. Please note the changes in the September schedule below.
PLEASE NOTE: The book delivery schedule is subject to change. Information will be provided on a month-to-month basis until a permanent schedule is established. Thank you for your patience!
Outreach and Home Delivery
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 and story times are provided.
HOME DELIVERY - RIGHT TO YOUR DOOR!
Any borrowable library material can be delivered to you including:
Books—regular or large print
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:
Renewals, requests and reserves
Book Club facilitation or assistance
Extended borrowing—Outreach patrons have a four week borrowing period.
PLUS fine free borrowing!
For information, or to apply for services, please call the Ohio County
Public Library and speak to the Outreach Services Specialist, Julia Bachmann.
Due to the nature of Outreach Services, Julia may be out of the library. If this is the case, please leave a message and she will return your call as soon as possible.
