This is a service for people who are home bound and/or visually impaired. The library provides you with a selection of material tailored to your reading tastes, delivered by a volunteer.
Materials are delivered on a monthly basis by a volunteer or by a family member or friend. You may select from regular or large print books.
Audio materials are available in cassette book, cdbook and mp3 formats. Home Service patrons may also borrow videos for an extended loan period. We have a large number of musical CDs featuring all types of music which are also included in home service loans. Note: DVDs do not qualify for the Home Service program.
Thanks to a generous donation from the Friends of the Thunder Bay Public Library, the library now has DAISY readers available for loan to our home service clients who would like to try out CD books. What is DAISY? "A DAISY book is a talking book that uses the International DAISY standard – it stands for Digital Accessible Information SYstem. DAISY books are human narrated books that are recorded on CD. They can be read on a portable DAISY player or on a computer with DAISY software."
