Homebound Service is a free, personalized delivery of library materials to persons confined to their homes due to physical disability or illness. A Library staff member delivers and picks up items once a month. There is no “due date” and therefore, no overdue notices or fines on materials loaned to the homebound.
You must have a Baldwin Public Library card in good standing and be temporarily or permanently homebound. In cases of permanent disability, a doctor’s note may be required.
Specific books can be requested by title. No bestsellers and no videos may be borrowed. Up to 12 items (subject to availability) may be borrowed at one time, but no more than three books on one subject (as determined by the call number).
Please call Betty Holup at (516) 223-6228 x48 for more information.
