This service is for people who are home bound and/or visually impaired. The library provides a selection of materials tailored to your reading tastes, delivered by a volunteer or family member.
Materials are delivered on a monthly basis by a volunteer or may be picked up more frequently by a family member or friend. You may select from regular or large print books, as well as magazines, graphic novels and paperbacks.
Audio materials are available in playaway, cd-book and mp3 formats. We have a large number of musical CD's 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 has DAISY readers available for loan to our home service clients who would like to try our 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 thar are recorded on CD. They can be read on a portable DAISY player or on a computer with DAISY software."
