Homebound Delivery

Let the Library Come to You!

The Westland Public Library offers a delivery service for Westland residents confined to their homes.

After filling out an application, a librarian will conduct a personal interview to answer any questions and create a patron profile, guiding delivery material selection. Materials will be dropped off and picked up biweekly or monthly on Wednesday mornings.

For additional information, please contact our Homebound Coordinator.
