Home Delivery

If you’re an Addison resident (or paying cardholder) who is homebound for at least four weeks due to disability or illness, then you’re welcome to order our items to be dropped off at your door.

What kind of items can I borrow this way?

Almost everything at the library, including books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, magazines, and children’s items. You may check out ten items at a time.

Will there be late fees if I keep things for longer than four weeks?

There is no risk of late fees, and all items can be renewed unless someone else has reserved it. Damaged materials and lost materials will still be charged to the patron, and patrons who already have more than $10 in fines need to pay off their fines before they’re eligible to borrow.

How does it work?

Delivery and pick-up will happen approximately once every two to four weeks. Our delivery person will contact you to set up a time for delivery that works with your schedule. Our delivery person—an employee or volunteer—will call to make sure you are home.

Great! How do I get started?
