Homebound Policy

Homebound Policy

The Palermo Community Library provides free delivery of materials twice a month to Palermo residents who are Library patrons unable to visit the Library due to long or short-term illness, immobility or age.

If you are interested in the Homebound Program, please call 207-993-6088 or email us at  palermo@palermo.lib.me.us.

Library volunteers will deliver regular and Large Print books, audiobooks and DVDs requested by the patron.

Services are provided at no charge to the patron; however, if materials are lost or destroyed the patron will be charged the replacement cost for the item plus a processing fee of $2.00 per item.

For those who have difficulty seeing the printed word, the Library also has information about Library Services for People with Disabilities (link is external) administered by the Maine State Library for the Library of Congress.
