Bellevue Public Library @ Home
Do you love to read but can't get to the library? The Bellevue Public Library offers home deliveries of books and other materials to adult residents in Bellevue. Our homebound delivery service is possible through a partnership with the Friends of the Bellevue Public Library.
Who is it for?
The Bellevue Public Library @ Home homebound delivery service is for adult Bellevue residents who are confined to their home or care facility (assisted living, care center or retirement community) due to a chronic or temporary disability or who lack transportation.
How does it work?
Library staff select books and other materials according to the preferences of the homebound library users. The Friends of the Bellevue Public Library will make daytime deliveries and pick-ups every four weeks on Tuesdays.
How long may I borrow the items?
All materials will have a four-week checkout with no renewals. Those using this service will be allowed 10 items per month, five of which may be audiovisual materials. There will be NO overdue fines on any items, but those using the service will be responsible for lost or damaged items.
What can be borrowed?
- Books, large and regular print
- Books on CD
- Music CDs
- Movies on VHS or DVD
