Boulder Public Library Home Delivery Program Information

Boulder Public Library’s Home Delivery Program provides home delivery of library materials to patrons who meet the eligibility criteria below. Patrons in the program are paired with a trained volunteer or staff member who delivers and picks up library materials on a regular basis. The program is typically offered based on volunteer availability. During the COVID-19 period, library staff will also be supporting patrons. After COVID-19, our ability to continue the service will depend on volunteer availability.

Who is eligible?

Individuals eligible to participate in the program include those who live in Boulder city limits; have no one available (friends and/or family members) to pick up and return library items; AND who are unable to get to a library for an extended period because of:

  • age,
  • disability,
  • illness or
  • the coronavirus public health crisis.

Home Delivery Application

How does the Home Delivery Program work?

  • A trained volunteer or library staff member is matched with each patron in the program.
  • Library materials are delivered to the patron’s home and materials for return are picked up and returned to the library.
  • In limited cases, the volunteer/staff member can also help the patron with the selection of the materials and managing their library account.
  • Frequency of deliveries depends on the patron’s reading habits, availability of holds, hold appointments, and availability of volunteers/staff. Typically, deliveries and pick-ups will be every two to three weeks.

What library materials are offered through the program?

Materials that can be delivered include:

  • Books (regular and/or large print)
  • Audiobooks on CD
  • DVDs
  • Requested library materials from other area libraries as they are available.

Magazines are not available through the Home Deliver Program.

What are the patron’s responsibilities in the Home Delivery Program?

  • Have a library account in good standing
  • Work with your volunteer/staff member to arrange for material to be dropped off and picked up at a time that is convenient for both parties
  • Relinquish library items that cannot be renewed
  • Maintain the condition of library materials in your possession

How do I get started? Fill out the Home Delivery Application. Once it is received, we will work to match you up with a volunteer/staff member. We will contact you as soon as a volunteer/staff member is available, typically within two to three weeks.
