Homebound Delivery Service --Book delivery and pickup

The Avon Public Library offers volunteer delivery services to Avon residents who are homebound, temporarily or permanently, because of illness, disability or advanced age.   The patron must have a current Avon library card. Applications will be mailed to residents who do not have a card.
Residents may call the library at 673-9712 to register.  Ask for the homebound service at the Reference Desk.  A staff member will assist with the selection of materials.  All circulating library materials may be delivered.  These include books, music, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, videos or large print books.   The lending period is the normal loan time, but users may call the Library to renew items if they are not on reserve.  The staff member will then call a volunteer.  The volunteer will be given the resident’s telephone number and address and will call to arrange a convenient time for delivery and/or pickup.

This service is also available by email at:


Please include name, address, telephone number and library barcode number from the back of your library card.

For those interested in volunteering for this service, please fill out our volunteer application.  If you have questions please call the Reference Desk.
