About the Service
Volunteers will deliver books, audiobooks, DVDs, CDs, magazines, or video games to homebound patrons on the last Tuesday of the month. Patrons enrolled in this service enjoy late fee exemptions and extended loan periods for Auburn Hills Public Library materials. Late fees for other libraries’ items and lost item fines still apply.
This service is free to all who qualify. You do not need to have a library card before beginning the program, though a card will be assigned to you upon enrollment. You may opt to have the librarian select a set number of titles for you based on your preferences, or you may choose to participate in the program on a request-only basis.
To be enrolled in this service, patrons must be Auburn Hills residents. Patrons must be unable to drive temporarily or permanently, or must be serving as a primary caregiver to qualify. There are no age restrictions. For questions, please contact a librarian.
Materials will be on loan for a month at a time, with renewals possible. New materials will not loan out to homebound patrons until after they have been removed from our new shelf, but patrons are welcome to place requests for a later time. Magazines delivered to homebound patrons are discards that have aged out of our collection, so they do not need to be returned. Magnifying glasses are available to large print readers when a large print copy of a requested item is not available.
To sign up for this service, please fill out the application materials below. For assistance or to fill out the application over the phone, please contact our librarians at 248-370-9466.
