Homebound Delivery

Let the Library Come to You!

The William P. Faust Public Library of Westland offers a delivery service for Westland residents who are confined to their homes. After a personal interview, a librarian selects materials of interest to you, including books, DVDs, audiobooks, music CDs, and periodicals/magazines. Materials will be dropped off and picked up every other Wednesday by a homebound volunteer.
