Can’t Get Out?

If you are cannot come to the Library, the Library can come to you. The “Books to Your Door” program is available to all Simsbury residents, at no charge. You can use the program whether you are homebound long-term or temporarily due to illness, disability or advanced age.

How Does It Work?

Books, audiobooks, magazines, DVDs and CDs can be delivered directly to your door. Your materials will be delivered to your home on Thursdays, and we’ll also pick up any you want to return. Most materials may be kept for three weeks.
