Hedberg @ Home Materials Delivery
Service provides regular home delivery of library materials to patrons in Janesville who are unable to visit the library due to age, a temporary or permanent physical condition, or lack of transportation.
Any Janesville resident who is unable to visit the library and who lives in either an independent setting or in a group residential facility without a rotating collection of materials can apply for this service. The service is also available to caregivers whose responsibilities make library visits difficult.
Pick-up/delivery is usually every four weeks. No fines are charged for overdue materials. However, charges will be assessed for lost or damaged items.
To arrange for Materials Delivery service or for more information, please contact our Hedberg @ Home Coordinator Maureen Birchfield at (608) 758-6592.
Programs are provided to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, senior apartment, etc.
