Homebound Access Delivery Service

Homebound Access Delivery Service

Jericho Town Library provides delivery services to anyone who is homebound (permanently or temporarily) and cannot come to the library to pick up their books in person. Patrons can request materials via phone, email, or a snail mail paper form. We make deliveries between 10 am and noon on the first and third Wednesday of each month and patrons can return books at that time as well.

The community’s health is our priority: for everyone’s safety, deliveries are completely contactless and outdoors. We will leave materials in a Jericho Town Library canvas tote bag just outside the door (in a dry, safe space as best we can). We ask patrons to leave materials that they would like to return in a tote bag outside so we can collect them easily. The delivery driver will not be able to enter patrons’ homes.

All anyone needs in order to qualify for this resource is to be a Jericho resident who cannot currently leave their home, for whatever reason. We can easily issue a JTL card if they do not already have one. You can reach us to ask for a paper request form to be mailed to someone at library@jerichotownlibraryvt.org or (802) 899-4686.

Jericho Town Library knows that recent years have been an incredibly difficult time for many, especially our community’s seniors. We’re hoping to reach all the people we can with this service, so please share widely with anybody who may benefit from it. The Homebound Access Service is made possible by the help of our volunteer delivery drivers. We offer this resource in collaboration with nearby organizations like the Jeri Hill community, Age Well Vermont, SASH (Cathedral Square’s Support and Services at Home), and SSTA (Special Services Transportation Agency).

This resource requires a library card to use it.
