Home Services

Homebound Books

Residents of Hillsborough County may be eligible for the library's Homebound Books service. Managed by staff members at the John F. Germany Public Library, the service provides book selection and home delivery of materials to program participants.

Every four weeks, Homebound Books customers receive a set number of staff-selected books. When applicants are enrolled in the service, they establish their reading interests and specify format preferences (large print, paperback, etc.). A member of the Library's staff uses a special computer program to aid in selecting specific titles to match customers' profiles and track their reading history. Customers may call at any time to place special requests for specific titles. Available items will be sent in the next delivery cycle.
