Home Delivery Service

WHO qualifies for this service?

Ephrata Public Library's Home Delivery service provides library materials to Ephrata area residents who are unable to visit the library due to temporary or long-term physical illness or disability. Patrons must reside within the Ephrata Public Library service area and be eligible for a library card. All circulation policies apply.

WHAT library materials are available and what is the cost?

Materials available for delivery include books (fiction, nonfiction, and large print), audiobooks, magazines, music CDs and videos. You may request specific titles or books by your favorite authors. Materials will be selected for you based on the reading interests you indicate on the Home Delivery application. This is a free service funded through grants and facilitated by library staff and volunteers.

WHEN are the books delivered?

Deliveries are made the first and third Monday mornings of each month by dedicated library volunteers.
