My mother loves to read but is not able to drive. Do you deliver books to people who aren't able to get to the library?

Yes, the library does offer a homebound delivery service and Books By Mail to those customers who are physically unable to travel to their library branch. This option is offered through our Outreach Services department. Customers who qualify for homebound delivery can request their own items, or have Outreach staff select materials based on their reading preferences.

Is there a way I can keep track of the library items I've checked out in the past?

If you've ever been in the situation of trying to think of the name of that great book or movie you got from the library a while back, but just couldn't remember the title, then we have a resource that can help. When you log into your library account online, there is a feature you can activate that will keep a list of the items you have checked out and returned. This feature is called Recently Returned, and can be found when you log into your account on the library's website.
