Sign up for Books on Wheels

“Books on Wheels” is an outreach program in which library items are brought to patrons by Curtis volunteers.

Eligibility

“Books on Wheels” is available to any resident of Brunswick or Harpswell who is unable to visit the library because of age, illness, or disability – be it permanent or temporary.  You will also need a library card.

No fee

This is a free service!

How the service works

Once registered, each person in need is matched with a volunteer who will deliver (and return) books as requested.  Once matched, you will follow these steps:

  1. Call the designated volunteer or the library at 725-5242 ext. 301.
  2. Leave a message requesting the items you want delivered (or to request the pick up of a return).  Please leave your name and phone number.
  3. You will receive a call back to arrange a drop off (or pick up) day and time.
