Homebound Delivery – Books on Wheels!
The Belmont Public Library and Beech Street Center are offering a service for the citizens of Belmont called “Books On Wheels” which includes:
- Access to our books, movies, and audiobooks
- Free monthly delivery, 4th Thursday, 9:30am – 11:30am
This program will offer delivery of Library materials to patrons unable to get out of their home. Books, films, audiobooks, and music will be available for delivery. All items may be taken for one month, and no late fines will be charged if returned after the due date. Items obtained through interlibrary loan may still be subject to owning library’s borrowing rules and loan periods.Information packets are available at the Library. Ask a friend, family member or neighbor to come to the Library and pick up the packet for you which will include:
- Books on Wheels Registration Application
- Library Interest Survey
- Books on Wheels – Policy.
Deliveries will be made by The Beech Street Center driver once a month on the 4th Thursday of the month. Volunteers are welcomed for additional deliveries during the month. Patrons will also be allowed an additional card to give to a friend or family member interested in making individual deliveries to them. This will allow them access to that patrons account, the ability to select and check out materials, and pick up holds for them. This permission must be given in writing through the Registration Application.
We are excited about this partnership and the opportunity to take the Library out of the building and into our community. Special Thanks to The Belmont Savings Bank Foundation for sponsoring this offering and providing canvas bags for participants.
