ELPL Homebound Delivery Service
The East Longmeadow Public Library is now offering Homebound Delivery Service for town residents that are unable to visit the library due to illness or disability. We can deliver books, movies, magazines and music CDs. If you are interested in this program, contact us at 413-525-5400 ext. 1511. If you know of someone who might benefit from this program, please tell them! We are also looking for people who are interested in being volunteer drivers. Our goal is to get library materials to everyone in East Longmeadow that wants them, regardless of whether they can get to the library in person or not.
We look forward to hearing from you!
