Homebound Mail Delivery
Homebound patrons are eligible to receive free mail delivery of library materials. In order to participate, patrons must:
- Live within the city of Bentonville
- Be unable to visit the library because of temporary or long-term illness, injury, impairment, medical condition, age-related issue, or disability.
- Regular print books, large print books, audiobooks, and magazines are available for mail delivery.
- Up to five (5) items will be delivered at one time.
How does it work?
Library staff will select materials for you based on your preferences. Specific title requests can be made on our website or with the Outreach Coordinator. Items will be checked out for a period of 3 weeks. Materials will arrive to your residence in a reusable mailer bag with a two-sided shipping label. When you’re done, refill the bag, flip the shipping label to the other side, and leave for your mail carrier. Once the library receives your returned materials, we will prepare and send your next delivery.
Fines and Fees
This service is free of charge. There will be no late fees on materials checked out through this program. If items are damaged or lost, the patron is responsible for associated costs.
