Homebound Services

Does the library offer home delivery of library materials?

NBPL's free homebound delivery service is available to Newport Beach residents who are unable to come to the library due to temporary or long-term illness or disability.

How it works:

  • Once accepted for the service, Homebound Delivery Service customers receive a preferences form to fill out, to help librarians select materials that will meet their needs.
  • A trained volunteer will talk about reading and entertainment preferences with the customer and will serve as a liaison with library staff.
  • Librarians will make every effort to select the kinds of materials the homebound customer will enjoy.
  • After materials are selected, the volunteer will deliver them to the customer and pick up items that were delivered on a previous visit.

If you'd like to receive Homebound Delivery Service, or if you want to participate as a volunteer in the program, please call 949-717-3824.
