Homebound Services Policy
The Morton Grove Public Library is pleased to offer Homebound Services to those patrons residing in Morton Grove who are unable to frequent the library. “Homebound” is defined as being generally confined to the residence either temporarily, due to illness, or permanently, due to age, disability or other mobility problems.
A patron applying for homebound service must first have a Morton Grove Public Library card. If the patron does not have a library card, an application for a card can be filled out during the first homebound visit. An Application for Homebound Service can be filled out in advance or during the first homebound visit as well.
A patron registered for Homebound Services may call or email the library to request specific titles, or they can request that a librarian select materials based on the patron’s reading preferences as specified in the initial application form.
A patron registered for Homebound Services may also request instruction session(s) on computer use in varied applications, library premium subscription services or mobile devices. MGPL will make all attempts to provide such training subject to staff availability.
Deliveries of library materials may be made by library staff or library volunteers as available.
Please complete the Homebound Service Application form online or print and return to the Library to begin homebound service.
