Answer

We do have a service for patrons who are homebound.  To register they need to contact the circulation department at W. Dale Clark Main Library at 402.444.4809.

Below is the information of who qualifies, per our circulation manual.

·         Any borrower with an impairment that prevents him/her from moving around easily. This would include borrowers in wheelchairs, borrowers who use leg braces, borrowers who use walkers or crutches, borrowers who are sight impaired, etc.

 

·         A borrower who is temporarily handicapped with an injury such as a broken leg or hip may have his/her borrower type changed to Homebound during recuperation.

 

·         Many borrowers are mobile during good weather. Winter weather makes travel difficult for elderly borrowers. It is okay, on a seasonal basis, to mail items to the homes of these borrowers.
