Can’t make it to the library? We’ll bring it to you! The Round Rock Public Library now offers homebound delivery services as part of an ongoing effort to make library resources even more accessible to Round Rock residents.
The COVID-19 pandemic amplified the need to find new and innovative ways to enhance access across all aspects of municipal service. Understanding this, the City initiated a variety of programs to help connect residents with local resources, including those provided by the library.
The recently launched Homebound Delivery Service is available to individuals living within the city limits of Round Rock who are homebound. For the purposes of this program, a homebound a person is considered to be 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.
As part of the delivery services program, homebound patrons now have access to the library’s entire collection, including books, music collections, DVDs, internet hotspot devices and more.
If you or someone you know is in need of homebound library services and would like to find out more about this program, contact the Homebound Delivery Service team at (512) 962-4988.
