The Homebound Library Delivery Service at the Moline Public Library serves to individual who are residents within Moline Public Library district boundaries and are unable to physically come into the library. “Homebound” is defined as being generally confined to one’s residence either temporarily due to illness or accident, or permanently due to disability, age, or other mobility issues. In most circumstances, if a patron drives, he/she would not be considered homebound. This service is open to all ages.
Homebound services are provided at no cost to the patron. Patrons must be a resident in the city of Moline and have a current 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 please call the library at 620-515-2767 or email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Moline Public Library will offer assistance to those needing help in using the library, finding the materials they need, and locating information. Telephone reference service is available. All materials available to in house patrons will be available to telephone patrons to the extent that the information requested lends itself to being conveyed in that manner.
Patrons are encouraged to use commercial providers of fax services. However, those wanting to send a fax while they are using the library will be accommodated. The charge will be $2.00 for the first page sent and $1.00 for each succeeding page. Faxes may be sent internationally if they may be direct-dialed. In such cases, library staff will first check online to see the applicable per-minute long-distance charge for that country. If the per-minute charge exceeds $3.00, the cost per page will be increased. The increase will be $1.00 for each full or partial additional dollar per-minute charge. Persons wishing to receive faxes must put in their request with the library director before it is sent and will be charged 50 cents per page. If the person receiving the fax does not pick it up on the same business day, one contact by telephone will be made if the telephone number is available. There will be a service charge of $1.00 for this. Faxes not picked up within three business days will be discarded.
