Homebound Services


  • Volunteers deliver library materials free of charge to West Hartford residents who are temporarily or permanently confined to home because of illness, disability, or advanced age.
  • To register, call 860.561.6951. Volunteers answer the phone on Tuesdays from 10:00AM – 11:30AM, but you may call any day and time to leave a message. The volunteer will need to know your name, address, phone number and special reading needs and interests. Have your library card ready so you can read the numbers on the back. If you do not have a card or yours has expired, the volunteer can arrange to have a new one made for you.
  • To request materials, you may call the Homebound phone line, 860.561.6951, or the Reference Desk, 860.561.6990. You can ask for specific materials or tell us what types of material you like and we’ll make selections for you.
