Books On Wheels – Service to Homebound Patrons

Books on Wheels serves patrons living in the Prescott city limits who may be confined to their residence or care home/facility due to illness or physical disability.

Each home borrower fills out an application form and an information sheet about the kinds of materials they desire. Once the home borrower’s application has been approved, the home borrower will be matched with a volunteer. The volunteer will be provided with a copy of the home borrower’s information sheet.

The volunteer visits the library and selects reading material for the home borrower based upon the home borrower’s information sheet or request. Training sessions can be provided at the volunteer’s request to help them develop the skills necessary to locate specific titles and/or to use the library’s online catalog. Once library materials are selected and checked out, volunteers contact their home borrower and deliver the items. Delivery of books and other library materials to the patron generally occurs at least once a month at a mutually agreed upon time.

Please print, complete and return a Books on Wheels application to the library.  If you are not able to print the application, please contact Toni Johnson to have an application mailed to you.  Following receipt of your application, we will contact you.  If you have any questions, please contact Toni Johnson at 928.777.1504 or toni.johnson@prescott-az.gov.
