For Marathon County residents unable to visit the library due to age, illness, accident or disability, our Homebound program offers a way to receive library materials at home by mail or special delivery. Please call 715-261-7248 to sign up for this free service!
This service is free of charge, but a valid library card is required. Once enrolled, library volunteers will select materials for you based on your preferences and send these items to your residence on a regular schedule. Items are checked out for five weeks and may be returned by mail or courier.
- large print books
- regular print books
- audiobooks on CD
- DVD movies / TV series
- music CDs
You do not need a statement from your doctor to register for Homebound Services. You only must be unable to get library materials in any other way.
You may enroll on a temporary basis if you are in a condition that has left you temporarily homebound.
You may refer a friend or family member to Homebound Services.
Also: The Marathon County Public Library is a local contact for the Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library (WTBBL).
