Services for the Homebound

The White Plains Public Library offers Homebound Services for White Plains residents who are unable to come to the Library due to temporary or permanent disability. Through this program, disabled patrons may call the Library to have books, audiobooks, or compact discs delivered to their home.

This service is a joint project with our Friends of the Library group. A volunteer from the Friends of the Library delivers the items that have been selected by a librarian. The Homebound Librarian works closely with each patron to identify favorite authors, titles, genres, or formats, choosing from the Library’s large selection of both regular and large print books, paperbacks, and audiobooks. Typically, ten items are delivered to the homebound patron approximately every six weeks.

Please contact the Homebound Services Librarian at 914-422-1485 if you would like to join this program or have any questions about this service.
