Residents who enjoy books and reading, but are unable to visit the library due to medical or disability challenges, may register for Calloway County Public Library Homebound Book Delivery Service. Materials available for this service include regular and large print books and are delivered to patrons in their homes and assisted living facilities twice monthly. Books are selected for each patron by CCPL’s Outreach Services Librarian, Cyndi Curtis, based on the personal reading preferences specified when registering for the service.
A short term version of the Homebound Book Delivery Service and is designed for patrons who are temporarily unable to visit the library due to a medical issue.
This service provides Child Care, Preschool, and Elementary Educators with twice monthly deliveries of pre-selected children’s books to centers and schools.

Books are selected by CCPL’s Story Time Coordinator, Erica Lewis.
CCPL’s Outreach Services Department is also available to assist CCPL patrons with applications for the Kentucky Talking Books, a free service provided by the Kentucky Talking Book Library to anyone unable to read because of visual or physical limitation.
