Homebound Delivery
The Shenandoah Public Library offers homebound delivery of library materials to patrons in Shenandoah city limits who can't get to the library because of temporary hardship due to major illness, an ongoing need due to physical handicap, long-term illness, or homebound seniors.  You will receive personalized visits, no overdue fines, longer lending periods (8 weeks), and delivery right to your front door.  Delivery will be made on the 1st and/or 3rd Friday of the month, and participants will need to call in their requests by 5pm on the Wednesday prior to delivery.  Librarians will work with you to select books that are to your taste.  Call Carrie or Liz at the library for more information or to sign up: 712-246-2315.
