Home Delivery Service

Through the library’s Home Delivery Service, library materials are selected with the help of our staff and trained volunteers.  Library materials are then delivered free of charge to the patron’s home.  Deliveries are scheduled on a monthly basis.

Who is Eligible?

Patrons who reside in the Wayne County Public Library service area (this excludes the Orrville School District) and who are unable to use the library’s buildings or bookmobiles due to temporary or long-term illness or injury, disability or limited mobility or senior citizens without transportation.

Getting Started

Contact the Assistant Manager of Circulation at 330.804.4662.  You will need to fill out a short application that includes information about your reading/listening/viewing interests.  You will then be assigned a volunteer.  Service is contingent on the number of volunteers available.
