Outreach Services for the Homebound is a specially-funded library service for Mechanics' Institute Library members who are homebound due to illness, injury or disability or who are caring for ill, injured or disabled family members.
The Mechanics’ Institute Library outreach program provides books and audiobooks by postal mail to members who are no longer able to visit the Library. This program is strictly limited to the homebound and can be activated by the completion of a simple form and a one-time registration fee of $25. If a Mechanics’ member is unable to afford the registration fee, it can be waived by contacting 415-393-0107 or by emailing the Library Director.
Materials are mailed free of charge to members through a special service offered by the U.S. Postal Service.All library materials circulate to homebound members for six weeks. Participants are permitted four items, including books, magazines, and audiobooks per request.
To register for this program, please complete the registration form or contact Cherilyn at 415-393-0101 or [email protected] and we will have you on your way to home delivered library materials in no time at all.
If you'd like to contribute resources or to assist with this program, contact 415-393-0102 or [email protected].
