In order to provide library materials to residents of Watertown who cannot use the main facility because of a disability, the Special Services Librarian/Library Specialist will make materials available through selection and delivery to Special Services patrons. Unless authorized by the Special Services Librarian/Library Specialist, all loan periods, fines, and fees for lost or damaged items remain the same. (See Circulation Policy)
Criteria for consideration for home delivery of library materials:
Patron must be a person with a disability which prevents them from visiting the library and/or carrying material out of the library. The condition need not be long term.
The patron must request the service.
The patron must live within the city limits of Watertown.
The Special Services Librarian/Library Specialist in conjunction with the City Librarian will determine if the library will provide home delivery on an individual basis.
