Homebound Delivery is a free service offered to O'Fallon Public Library cardholders who are unable to make it to the library due to mobility, health, or disability barriers. Whether you are at home, in assisted living, or in a nursing facility, we can deliver to you.
Will someone call from the Library to discuss items that I may be interested in?
Once you complete the application, the Homebound Coordinator will contact you to discuss all the details and answer any question, as well as help with suggestions based off of your application.
How long can I borrow the items you bring me?
The lending period for O'Fallon Public Library items through the homebound program is flexible, generally 4 weeks. You can renew your materials one time. Materials not available at the time of request will be placed on reserve and delivered when they become available. Please note that there may be waiting lists for new and/or popular items.
What materials are available?
The library has a large collection of large print and regular print books, as well as many audiobooks, magazines, movies and music that we can deliver.
When will you be delivering materials?
Once we have discussed what materials you are interested in, we will schedule a time to visit your home to deliver materials. Home visits are scheduled on the 2nd Wednesday of every month.
How do I return items?
Materials will be delivered to and picked up from each participant’s residence by the Homebound Coordinator. Simply have your returns ready to go and we will pick them up when we drop off new items.
