OUTREACH SERVICES

Books-to-Go
MSL offers “Books-to-Go,” a home delivery service of books, audiobooks, magazines, and movies to homebound Library customers who reside in Manchester. The program will deliver to private residences as well as to independent living and nursing home facilities.
Our team of volunteers is eager to assist Manchester residents in finding satisfying library materials.  Residents who are experiencing either a short term or long term incapacity may request specific titles or subjects at any time, or may have a volunteer select materials for them based on their personal interests. To sign up or get more information about “Books-to-Go”, contact Cindy Waters at 362-2607.

Book Express
Our Book Express service offers themed book boxes to local childcare centers and family daycare homes. There are 22 different boxes, including both books and supportive materials. Themes include “Animals,” “Growing Things” and “Things That Go.” Library volunteers deliver and pick up book boxes, which may be borrowed for one month. If you are a preschool or daycare provider interested in Book Express, please call Jan or Janet at 362-2607.
