Books To Go

The inscription on the New York City Post Office reads: "Neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

Books To Go, the Library’s service to the homebound, doesn’t deliver at night, but it does keep homebound customers supplied with books and audios throughout the year—rain or shine.

If you know a senior citizen who lives at home and loves to read or listen to CDs, but can’t visit the library because of advancing age or poor health, please tell him or her about Books To Go. How does it work? It's simple. First, we ask our homebound customers what they like to read. Then, each month we deliver a green bag filled with a 4-week supply of Library materials chosen just for them.

For more information, or to find out if someone you know qualifies, call Teen & Adult Services at 873-3149, ext. 12400.
