What are Homebound Delivery Services?
The Sutton Library offers free delivery of books and other library materials to residents who are unable to visit the Library in person. A library card will be issued to residents who do not already have one.
Who is eligible to receive this service?
Sutton residents of any age who are confined to their homes either temporarily, due to illness or accidents, or permanently, due to disability, age, or other mobility issues are eligible for homebound delivery. Services may also be extended to the in-home caregiver of a homebound patron.
How does delivery work?
Library materials will be delivered to a patron's residence by Library staff members or volunteers. Delivery will be scheduled at the mutual convenience of staff or volunteer and patron, generally once every 2 weeks.
What items can I request?
Books, audiobooks, DVDs, music CDs, magazines, and many other materials are available at the Library to check out.
How do I make my selections?
When a staff member or volunteer visits your home, you can discuss with them what materials you would like to receive and fill out a reader survey with your choices. A librarian will then make selections based on your reading preferences and/or the items you have specifically requested. Please let staff and volunteers know if you have visual or hearing difficulties.
