Books & More to Your Door!

Do you know someone who has no car, can only drive or leave home for short periods of time, uses a wheelchair, or has been restricted to their bed?

If someone is "homebound", even temporarily, because of lack of transportation, illness, disability, pregnancy, or age and they would like to borrow books, movies, music or other materials from the library we have a solution.
We now have a program which makes materials available to Alvarado area residents who are unable to visit our library.
