Your Kirkwood Public Library provides free home delivery of library materials to Kirkwood residents who are unable to come into the library due to illness or physical limitations. The program is open to patrons of all ages. Materials are HomeboundPicturedelivered to residents of private homes, senior residential centers, skilled nursing centers and group homes.

Thanks to a grant from the Missouri State Library, we can now offer our Homebound patrons access to a special collection of bestsellers, large print titles, music CDs and DVDs, as well as access to the library’s other materials.

If you are interested in learning more about this service for yourself or a loved one, please give the library a call at 314-821-5770, ext. 1025. It is easy to sign-up!
