Homebound Delivery

If you are physically unable to visit the Library, whether on a short or long-term basis, you are eligible to receive our free, personalized home delivery service!

Haverford Township residents who are homebound may apply to have library materials delivered to their home once a month. All ages - adults, teens, and children - are eligible for the service.


H.O.M.Express customers can request particular titles and formats or Librarians can choose books based upon an individual’s favorite authors and genres.


Deliveries are made once a month by dedicated library volunteers.
