Home Library Service

Home Library Service is available for Kingston-Frontenac residents who are homebound for three months or longer due to age, illness or disability.

How it Works

There are two options for delivery:  a monthly delivery, free of charge, of up to 20 items (including regular print hardcovers and paperbacks, large print books, magazines, CDs, DVDs, audiobooks, and DAISY talking books) or items sent through Canada Post, with return postage included. The service offered will depend on geographic location and availability of delivery drivers in your area.

How to Apply

Call us at (613) 549-8888 or use our web form. Library staff will verify your eligibility, discuss a delivery schedule, and ask you about your reading interests and needs so that each month we can send you items that you will enjoy.

Options Other Than Home Delivery

If you want only infrequent service or if you have someone who can pick up materials for you, we can arrange to send items to your local library for a family member, caregiver or friend to pick up.
