Home Service

Home Delivery of Library Materials

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 (a Friend of the Library) 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 cd-book and mp3 formats.



Volunteer delivery persons (if not a friend or family member of the home service client) must become members of the Friends of the TBPL by filling out and submitting the application form at the link below:


In addition to the application form, once the references have been checked and the volunteer has been added to the Friends volunteer list, applicants have to apply for and get a Police Records Check at their own cost ($25) - details on how to do this are sent to them via email.  All Friends also have to complete the legislated Accessibility for Ontarians with Disability (AODA) training as well in order to start volunteering.

Please email any questions and completed membership forms to comments@tbpl.ca
