Services to At Home Patrons
The Library provides books and other materials to patrons who have barriers in getting to the library. The service is provided free of charge to Hennepin County residents who cannot visit a library due to illness, disability, or visual impairment.

At Home Service Options
- By Mail
Patrons call the At Home phone line to request materials, and the items are mailed to the patron (with return postage paid).
- By Volunteer
A volunteer determines with the patron what he or she would like and requests it from the library. The volunteer brings the materials to the patron's home.
(Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.–5 p.m., excluding holidays)
At Home patrons can call to get answers to informational questions, book recommendations, and all the services received in a traditional library setting.
At Home Reader
At Home patrons also receive the At Home Reader, a bimonthly publication of book reviews, listings of new materials and library news items of interest.
