Home Delivery

Home delivery is available to Waterbury residents who are homebound or otherwise unable to visit the library in person.

Deliveries will be made by appointment. You must be at home to receive the delivery.

Library material can be returned at any time to the book return bin outside the library, or at home during your next scheduled delivery.

Guidelines for use:

  • Applying for home delivery is not a guarantee of delivery service.

  • If approved for home delivery, you must be home for delivery.

  • No one else is authorized to accept delivery except for the patron listed or secondary contact listed on the application.

  • Deliveries will not be left if you are not home and may be returned to our collection for circulation to other patrons.

    The home delivery service has been made possible by a grant from Governor Ned Lamont’s Everybody Learns Initiative, part of the larger Connecticut Coronavirus Relief Fund. The Everybody Learns Grant is an investment in public libraries and the communities that we serve.
