Volunteers and library staff deliver books and other materials to participants every three weeks. There is no charge for this service.

To volunteer to deliver library materials to a customer in your neighborhood or near your workplace, please call the Home Delivery Coordinator at 715-839-4857. As little as one hour of your time every three weeks would make a big difference in a person’s quality of life.
