Home Delivery Services
Unable to use the library in the traditional way? This free service may be for you! Library materials are delivered right to your door. We have thousands of materials to choose from: Fiction, Audiobooks, Cookbooks, Biographies, etc.
WHO can receive home delivery services?
Meridian Library District (MLD) residents who are temporarily or permanently confined to their homes due to illness, disability, or any other extenuating circumstance. This service is open to all ages.
HOW it works:
If you would like to have home visits from library staff, please fill out an application. We will contact you to set up a time for your first visit, as well as to learn more about what types of materials you are interested in receiving. Materials are delivered to your front door by MLD staff on a regular schedule or as needed.
WHAT we deliver:
We can deliver books (regular and large print), DVDs, music CDs, and audiobooks. We can also help you get eBooks and eAudiobooks from the library onto your own device.
Talking books program
The Idaho Commission for Libraries (ICFL) provides audiobooks and magazines to all Idaho residents who are unable to read standard print, hold a book, or turn pages due to a temporary or permanent physical limitation. ICFL mails materials directly to your home at no cost.
Want to volunteer in home delivery or senior services?
We are always looking for volunteers who want to serve those who cannot access the library.
Volunteers in home delivery and senior services can spend time doing many types of tasks, including visiting senior and assisted living communities, delivering programs, or helping select materials.
