Home Delivery Service Brings the Library To You

Do you or a loved one enjoy reading, but aren’t able to come to the library because of illness, disability or lack of transportation? Let Algonquin Area Public Library District’s Home Delivery Service bring the library to you each month!

Give us a list of specific book titles you’d like, or if you’re not sure, we are happy to do the selecting for you. Let us know your favorite authors and the types of books you most enjoy, and once a month, you’ll receive a bag of hand-selected materials based on your preferences. If you are interested, we can provide large print, and audiobooks. In addition to books, we can also provide movies, TV series, music CDs and magazines.

If you enjoy crafting, we will also bring you a take-and-make craft kit from our Makerspace, delivered with your library items. A Home Delivery Service specialist brings all this, plus a smile, right to your door.

Signing up is easy and the service is free! AALPD cardholders can apply for Home Delivery Services online, or pick up a paper application at the Adult Services desk. If you need a library card, we can verify that you live in our district and issue one for you. (If you don’t live in our district, most libraries offer home delivery service for their cardholders.) Your Home Delivery Service will begin the following month.
