Homebound Delivery Service: Library on Wheels


The Sharon Public Library offers home delivery service to Sharon residents who are temporarily or permanently unable to visit the library in person. Sharon residents, with a Sharon address, who are unable to travel to the library may register for this service. This includes individuals who may have temporary or permanent disabilities or health problems, and patrons who have been hospitalized or otherwise confined to their homes.

Volunteer drivers will deliver materials on a regular schedule, to ensure new materials are brought to homebound patrons, and to collect and return old materials. All volunteer drivers are required to pass the Criminal Offender Record Information (CORI) requirements.


Guidelines:
  • Home delivery service will be based on predetermined user-selected categories and preferences. More information about these options can be found on our registration form.
  • Books, audiobooks, magazines, and DVDs are available through this program for a checkout period of 2 weeks.
  • At the end of the 2-week period, you will be contacted by a library volunteer. All materials will be eligible for one renewal period of 2 weeks, provided no other patrons are waiting for the item.
To register for this service, please complete the Library on Wheels Patron Registration Form (starts on page 2) and provide your OCLN library card number. If you do not have a valid Sharon Public Library Card, you will need to complete a Library Card Registration form. Registration forms are available at the library's Circulation Desk and at the Sharon Council on Aging; or, contact Circulation Supervisor Karen Mafera by phone (781-784-1578 x1426) or email (kmafera@ocln.org) to set up your account.

Once your registration has been received and processed, a library volunteer will get in touch with you to set up your delivery schedule. For additional information or to schedule a delivery, contact Karen or Library Director Lee Ann Amend (lamend@ocln.org).
