We select and deliver library materials and services to people who are unable to visit a library building because of a long-term disability.
Service to Individuals
If you are unable to get to a library due to a long-term disability, COVID concerns, or the temporary closure of the Edmonds Library, we provide mail service of library materials. Materials can be mailed to individuals as needed and include a return envelope with postage paid. Find out more about Books by Mail and sign up.
Individuals who require a large amount of materials or do not have easy access to mail are served with a doorstep delivery at home.
Service to Senior Citizens & Housing Facilities
Communities can request library service for residents who are not able to get to the library through bookmobile service or quarterly deposits.
Large retirement or assisted living communities with high resident interest can receive a monthly bookmobile service. Once a month, we wheel carts full of materials into the community for resident browsing and borrowing. Must have safe, reserved parking for 25-foot vehicle and a community meeting space for library set-up.
We bring quarterly deposits of specially selected library materials to adult family homes and similar small care homes where residents cannot get to the library.
Child Care Visits
Every other month Library on Wheels staff deliver library books and preschool storytimes to qualifying licensed childcare centers, Head Starts, and ECEAPS. At this time we are only accepting new requests for service from ECEAPs, Head Starts, and developmental preschools. Please call 360-651-7059 or email us with questions.
