The Hayner Public Library District supports an extensive Homebound program that delivers library materials to patrons throughout our community. Staffed by Delivery Service Manager Esther Gillespie and Library Assistant Hector Lozano, the department delivers new
library materials to patrons at their residences every two to four weeks. The service currently delivers to eleven residential facilities, including Rosewood Care Center, Skyline Towers Apartments, Hillcrest Apartments, Extended Care Facility at St. Clare's Villa, Weston Terrace–United Methodist Village, Addus Adult Day Services, St. Clare's Villa, St. Clare's Rehabilitation Services, United Methodist Village, Fountains IV, Provision Living at Godfrey, Glenhaven Gardens of Alton, and Marian Heights Apartments.The service also delivers directly to patrons' homes on either an extended or temporary basis. A patron can receive a full selection of library materials including books, audiobooks,CDs, and DVDs. If the item the patron requests is not available from Hayner's collections, it will be ordered from another library.
To sign up for the service, just call 433-2863. You will be asked what kind of materials you would like, how many, and how frequently you
would like delivery. Materials will be selected for you based on your personal preferences (fiction, nonfiction, mysteries, biographies,
etc.). Esther, Hector, and three volunteers select and deliver hundreds of items a month. Homebound Services also maintains three
satellite library locations at Senior Services Plus, Provision Living at Godfrey, and Glenhaven Gardens of Alton.
You don't have to forgo using your library. Let Homebound Delivery Services bring Hayner Library to you!
