Services for the Homebound

Books on Wheels

Books on Wheels brings books to people who are homebound, and people unable to visit our libraries.

Library volunteers select books for customers, and Pima County Bike Ambassadors deliver the books once a month.

  • Himmel Park Library, Monica B., Kelly U., 594-5305
  • Joel D. Valdez Main Library, Karen G., 594-5500

Books by Mail

Books by Mail delivers large type and audiobooks to people who are visually impaired or who cannot read or use conventionally printed matter due to a physical handicap.

To be eligible:

  • You must reside in Pima County.
  • Your visual impairment is such that even after correction you are not able to read normal print comfortably for a sustained period of time.
  • You are physically unable to come into the Library and there is no one available to go for you.

Call 594-5415 for more information. Please note: Books by Mail currently has a waiting list.
