Books on Wheels

Service to Home-bound Patrons

The Freedom Public Library is pleased to announce our home delivery service, Books on Wheels. This program provides services to Freedom residents who are unable to get to the library due to short/long term illness, physical challenges, visual disabilities, inability to drive, hospitalization or long-term care residence. Some of the benefits of our Books on Wheels program are personalized visits by a library volunteer and delivery of materials tailored to your preferences. We can deliver books, movies, magazines and audio books right to your home. If you or someone you know would like this service, please call the Freedom Public Library at (603) 539-5176.
