The Round Rock Public Library now delivers materials to homebound residents. The pandemic amplified the need to provide library resources and services to a growing number of residents. When we surveyed customers about this idea, we received 84% “Very Positive” responses. We presented these findings and the idea for a Homebound Delivery Service to the City Council, and they approved to fund this service. The Library is constantly striving to improve our services based on needs and wants of the community, to reach our homebound customers, we will bring the Library to them!
Who is this Service For?
The Homebound Delivery Service is for individuals living within the city limits of Round Rock who are homebound. A homebound person is one who has a condition, due to an illness or injury, that restricts the ability of the individual to leave his or her home except with the assistance of another individual or the aid of a supportive device (such as crutches, a cane, a wheelchair, or a walker), or if the individual has a condition such that leaving his or her home is medically contraindicated whether temporary or long-term.
