Homebound Readers Services
Homebound Readers Services provides Library materials to patrons living in Long Beach who are confined to their homes by an illness or injury, either chronic or temporary.
The Long Beach Public Library (LBPL) offers a diverse and wide selection of books, magazines, and other materials in many different formats and languages. Materials are personally selected by a librarian for each reader and mailed out every other week at no charge. We provide prepaid postage so you can return the materials when you're done reading.
Interested patrons should return a completed Homebound Readers Services Application Form (PDF) by email, by mail, or in person to any LBPL location, or over the phone at (562) 570-6540.
Available to LBPL cardholders in good standing who reside in the City of Long Beach.
Our Digital Library is available anytime, from anywhere!
