Home Delivery Service is available to residents of the Fountaindale Public Library District who are unable to visit the library or Bookmobile. Those who use this service can request library materials to be mailed or delivered directly to their home. Deliveries are scheduled depending on staff availability and your preference. Materials have a four-week loan period, and because we are fine free, no late fees apply. Replacement costs for lost or damaged are the responsibility of the home delivery patron.
