  • Are you temporarily or permanently homebound? 

  • Do you no longer drive or do you have difficulty getting to the library? 

  • Are you considered a high-risk for COVID-19?


Outreach Services Specialist: Julia Bachmann

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are eligible for our Home Delivery Outreach Services. Being an outreach patron means that books and library materials are delivered directly to your door. This is a free service provided by the Ohio County Public Library.

Ohio County Public Library’s Outreach Services program provides home delivery of library materials to temporarily or permanently homebound patrons throughout Ohio County. 

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 can simply call to schedule a convenient delivery time.

Schools and daycare centers are also eligible for outreach services! Monthly book selections are delivered according to a regular monthly schedule.
