WHAT ARE OUTREACH SERVICES?

Outreach is a home delivery service for people living in the East Bonner County Free Library District who cannot come to the library. This includes people in assisted living facilities.

WHO IS ELIGIBLE FOR OUTREACH?

Outreach services are available to patrons in the East Bonner County Library district that are homebound, disabled or restricted by physical limitations.

HOW MUCH IS IT?

Outreach is a free service for those who qualify.

WHAT SERVICES ARE AVAILABLE?

We provide much the same services to our Outreach patrons as we do to those who are able to visit the library. We deliver regular and large print books, magazines, DVD's, audiobooks, CD’s, and eReaders. Materials are checked out for 3 weeks or 2 weeks, depending on the item, and are renewable if no one else is waiting for them.

For the legally blind or those who cannot hold a book due to physical constraints, we partner with the state "Talking Book Program" which provides books on tape and a machine on which to play them. The machine is sent to you by the state library on loan along with your favorite books by your favorite authors. Large Print Books can be sent to you through the same program.

If you or someone you know could benefit from any of the outreach services above, please call Lynn Hayes at (208)263-6930 ext. 1212.

WHAT IS THE BOOKMOBILE?

The bookmobile is like a small branch of the library, on wheels! It travels to the four corners of the district and carries all the types of materials that are available at the Sandpoint or Clark Fork branches. Any material – books, CDs, DVDs, magazines, games and Playaways can be requested and the drivers will bring it when it becomes available. Anything that is checked out at the bookmobile can be returned at any of the stops or at any of the other district branches.

WHY DO WE HAVE IT?

The mission of the Library District is to provide free and open access to information and ideas which are essential to a democracy.  In support of this mission, the District encourages lifelong reading and learning, supports activities important to our diverse community and is dedicated to the basic First Amendment principles of intellectual freedom and access to information without censorship. In order to serve the whole district as widely as possible and to fulfill its mission statement, the bookmobile was purchased.
