Who is eligible for the delivery service?
Home delivery is available to those who:

  • Do not have reliable transportation

  • Have health issues that keep them from the library

  • Live in assisted living, nursing or retirement communities

  • Residents of Rapid City Area School District inside Pennington County are eligible for library cards, selection and delivery.


What can be borrowed?
Materials include:

  • Books, large and regular print

  • Books on CD

  • Magazines

  • Movies on DVD

  • You may still place holds and request interlibrary loans

How long may I borrow the items?
The materials are checked out for 6 weeks and may be renewed one time. There are never overdue fines, however fees for lost or damaged materials will be assessed as necessary.

Is there a fee for this service?
If you are eligible, there is no cost for this service.

How do the volunteers assist?
Volunteer selectors call homebound patrons to announce the next delivery date and select new materials. Volunteer drivers deliver based on geographic location. For more information on volunteer opportunities click here.
