Atherton Library now offering delivery service to homebound

Atherton residents whose access to their local library is limited by illness or other factors may be eligible to have library materials delivered to their homes.

The Atherton Library's new Homebound Program began on March 15, and will serve residents with short- or long-term illness, physical constraints that limit mobility, and visual disabilities. Senior citizens who don't drive also are eligible for the program.

Program participants will have longer lending periods and will not be charged overdue fines for material they check out for home-delivery. All library material — including books, magazines, music recordings and films — will be available to participants.

The library is taking sign-ups for the program, and is also signing on volunteers who can help with deliveries. For more information, call the library at 328-2422.
