Homebound Delivery Service
is available to all residents of Ridgefield who are unable to come to the Library due to disability or health problems. Proof of Ridgefield residence will be necessary to enroll.

  • Service is provided to residents of all ages who meet the criteria.
  • Those with short-term as well as long-term need are welcome.
  • No proof of need from a physician or other referral is required.
  • Most library materials owned by the Ridgefield Library can be requested, including large print books, audiobooks and videorecordings.
  • Library staff conduct an intake interview to learn about a participant’s reading tastes and format preferences. Participants then call the Library when they wish to request a delivery.
  • A volunteer driver is assigned based on schedule and geographic compatibility. Volunteers typically deliver once a week. If the participant is not available, items are left at the door in a colorful, weather-resistant Library tote bag.
