At-Home Library Service

Do you know an Athens County resident who’s unable to visit a library branch due to illness, disability, caregiver responsibilities, or an ongoing lack of transportation?

ACPL offers free, at-home delivery of any item in the libraries’ collection (except for bicycles!)

Deliveries will occur at least once per month, and patrons can either request their own items, or have items chosen for them by library staff, based on things like the patron’s favorite authors and genres. Equipment for patrons to check their own blood pressure will also be an optional part of at-home visits.

Applications are available at all seven ACPL branches or by contacting Laura O’Neil at or (740) 805-0385.
