Enroll in the Friends Home Book Program
If you are homebound but would still like to be able to check out materials from the Marion Library, contact the Marion Public Library at HomeBooks@marionpubliclibrary.org. (This program is run by the library staff and financed by Friends.)
Once you enroll, library staff will check out books to you and mail them to your home along with pre-paid return postage. All you need to do is complete a brief application form telling staff about your reading interests, and mail it back to the library.
Haven't ever had a library card? Call the library at 319-377-3412 and tell them you'd like a library card for the Home Book Program. They'll take your information and mail you your new library card.
Do you know a reader who is homebound and who might enjoy this service? Please share information about this program! We'd love to have them sign up. Email HomeBooks@marionpubliclibrary.org with any questions.
