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.
Residents may call the library at 860-673-9712 to register. Ask for the homebound service at the Reference Desk. A staff member will assist with the selection of materials, and will arrange a convenient time for delivery and/or pickup of library materials. All circulating library materials may be delivered - including books, music, magazines, audiobooks, DVDs, Blu-Rays, and 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.
This service is also available by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include name, address, telephone number and library barcode number from the back of your library card.
