Homebound Delivery Service

Home Delivery Now Available for Clinton Patrons!

Are you unable to visit the library due to age, illness or disability? Don’t let that keep you from borrowing our materials. We are thrilled to partner with our local seniors’ organization, SSIP (Settled & Serving In Place) to bring home delivery to Clinton Community Library Patrons.

What materials can be accessed?

Any materials that can be checked out can be requested for home delivery.

How can my materials be chosen? 

You may request specific titles from our library or a library within our system. Our staff is also happy to select materials for you based on your favorite authors or interests.

When will I receive my requested materials? 

Materials will be delivered to your door by a volunteer from SSIP. CCL will work with you and the volunteer to schedule a mutually convenient delivery time.

How do I take advantage of home delivery? 

Delivery is available for Town of Clinton residents. If you or someone you know can benefit from this service, please contact the Library at 845-266-5530 or clintonlib1215@gmail.com.

Thank you to SSIP Taconic for sponsoring this service!

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks.
