Home Delivery

Wallingford Public Library At Your Door logo
At the Wallingford Public Library, we know that physical limitations can sometimes prevent people from leaving their homes. That’s why we have our Wallingford Public Library At Your Door Program.

WPL At Your Door is a program that brings the Library to you. It is a free library materials delivery service for Wallingford residents who have a valid library card and are unable to leave home because of a temporary or permanent disability or vulnerability.

More About WPL At Your Door

Who is eligible to enroll?
Wallingford residents who are confined to their home due to a prolonged illness or extended convalescence and do not have a household member to pick up and return library materials are eligible for this service.

How do I enroll?
Please call us at (203) 265-6754 to have the Enrollment Packet (includes the enrollment form, reading interest form, and informational brochure) sent to you by U.S. mail or by email.

How is delivery arranged?
Materials will be delivered to your home by a volunteer. Once your enrollment form is received, you will be contacted to discuss delivery. Delivery will be contactless as materials will be left in a secure location for you to receive. We will discuss the delivery drop off location when we receive your enrollment form.

Residents of healthcare facilities or nursing homes are encouraged to have a staff member or volunteer from the facility come to the Library to retrieve and return materials. We also are happy to put aside materials for a family member or friend to pick up on behalf of individuals confined to their homes.

What are the borrowing guidelines?
Up to 5 books, 5 magazines, 5 CDs, and 5 DVDs (15 total items) may be borrowed at a time for up to 4 weeks. Items may be renewed if there are no holds on them. The Library retains the right to assess fines and/or discontinue service if borrowed items are damaged.
