Outreach Services Policy

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.
