Home Library Service
The Home Library Service provides library materials to Hamilton residents unable to get to any of our 23 branches or Bookmobile sites.
To qualify, individuals must be:
- Homebound or institutionalized for three months or more because of age, illness, frailty, or caregiver responsibilities.
- A Hamilton resident.
Apply online or ask a caregiver to pick up a form in-Branch:
After you apply, HPL Staff select materials and mail them directly to you for free. Please note it may take 4-6 weeks from the time of application to the first delivery.
When finished, return your materials using the provided postage-paid return envelope. Family or friends can also return your items for you at any HPL branch. Take your time to enjoy your materials and return them at your convenience.
Canada Post offers a Delivery Accommodation Program to help you post packages to the library due to physical limitations. For more information about this program, please call Canada Post at 1-844-454-3009.
