Can't make it to the Library? The Library will come to you!

We offer a Home Delivery service to Schaumburg Library cardholders who cannot get to the Library because of:

  • Temporary or permanent physical disability
  • Visual impairment
  • Age 62 or older
  • No other means of receiving Library service, such as delivery through family members or friends
  • You are a live-in caregiver of a person who cannot leave the home

We can deliver almost anything that's available in the Library, including books, movies, music or games. We're able to visit you up to once every two weeks.

Interested in home delivery? Fill out a brief form or contact Outreach Services at @email or (847) 923-3392.

Talking Book and Braille Service

The Illinois State Library TBBS provides a free digital audio player and a variety of spoken materials to anyone unable to read standard print material due to a visual or physical disability. Braille materials and Descriptive Video Service films with audio narration are also available.

All materials are sent postage-free through the U.S. Postal Service. Contact Renee Anderson at @email or (847) 923-3388 to determine your eligibility and get help signing up.
