Your Accessible Library

Homebound Delivery
Those who are unable to come to the library because of physical limitations can still enjoy library services. Reader's Advisory librarian Mary Dunn works with homebound patrons to find materials that are to their liking, and has a dedicated corps of volunteers who deliver and pick up items. If you are interested in this service, call Mary at 608.789.7145

Service to Patrons who are Unable to Read
Those who are unable to read due to physical impairment can get direct service from the Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library. Volunteer Coordinator Myrna Paulson also works with the Talking Book Library and can let you preview the digital player. Call to make an appointment with her at 608.789.7125.
