Homebound Delivery

doors openingAt the Wallingford Public Library, we know that physical limitations prevent some people from leaving home.

WPL @ Your Doorstep is a library materials delivery service for homebound individuals. The service is free for Wallingford residents with a valid library card who are unable to leave home because of a temporary or permanent disability.

About Our Program

Who is eligible? Wallingford residents who are confined to their home due to prolonged illness or extended convalescence and do not have a household member to pick up and return library materials. Written verification of homebound status may be requested by the Library.

We also are happy to put aside materials for a family member or friend to pick up on behalf of homebound individuals. Residents of health care facilities or nursing homes are encouraged to have a staff member or volunteer from the facility come to the Library to retrieve and return materials.

How to apply: Applicants will complete an enrollment form and a reading interest form. Call us to have the forms sent via U.S. mail or email.

How is delivery arranged ? Materials will be delivered to your home by a volunteer or mailed to you along with a post-paid return envelope. When we receive your enrollment form, we will contact you to discuss delivery.

What are the borrowing guidelines? Up to 5 books, 5 CDs, and 5 DVDs (15 total items) may be borrowed at a time for up to 4 weeks. Items may be renewed if no one else is waiting for them.The Library retains the right to assess fines and/or discontinue service if borrowed items are damaged.
