In 2018 the library launched its Homebound Services Program. This service was created to allow Lawrence County patrons access to library materials when they are unable to visit the library due to ongoing health restrictions or disabilities. This service also helps the local nursing home to provide additional recreation to their residents. Patrons will complete an application to start the sign-up process for the service and also give LCPL Staff information on how to fulfill their needs. Staff will place items on hold based on the patron’s requests or based on genres indicated on their application. Items are delivered every other week.
Patrons who receive this service have access to the following materials and services:
- Books (Adult and Juvenile Titles)
- Movies (Adult and Juvenile Titles)
- Audio Books
- Online Databases
- eBooks (through Kentucky Libraries Unbound)
- Music CDs
What options are there if my application is not approved or there is a waiting list for service?
- An application may be denied because the patrons location is already on a designated bookmobile route. If that is the case, the Outreach Coordinator will ensure the patron is added to the bookmobile route if so requested.
- If there is a waiting list, patrons can visit the library to get a card, download digital items through Kentucky Libraries Unbound, or apply through KDLA for the Taking Books program to receive a digital books player and books.
Please review the details of the application before applying.
For more information contact the Outreach Coordinator, Liz Parsons, at (606) 638-4497 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications will be reviewed on a first-come, first-served basis. The Outreach Coordinator will contact applicants after application review.
