Library Beyond Walls

Due to COVID-19, Library Beyond Walls service is suspended until further notice.

Library Beyond Walls is a free in-home delivery service for Marin County residents who are unable to visit our libraries in person. Our staff and trained volunteers deliver and pick up library materials at your home. We can also help with using the library's digital materials.

For Patrons

Library Beyond Walls provides in-home delivery of library books, CDs, and other materials to Marin County Free Library patrons who have a permanent or temporary disability that prevents them from getting to a library branch. Patrons receive deliveries at least once a month from trained volunteers. Materials are checked out to a patron for up to six weeks.

We can also assist patrons in making use of our electronic resources, both for listening and reading. If you or a family member or friend would be interested in assistance with accessing our electronic resources, please contact us at 415-233-1498.

If you or a family member or friend might be interested in our delivery service, please print out a patron application packet, opens a new window. Once it is filled out, you can mail it to us or drop it off at your nearest Marin County Free Library branch.

For Volunteers

Do you love libraries and the opportunities they provide for personal enrichment and enjoyment? Would you like to help fellow Marin County residents continue to enjoy those benefits when they are unable to visit a library themselves?

Whether due to injury or infirmity, many of our fellow citizens are deprived of that simple pleasure, for brief periods of time or on a more permanent basis. Library Beyond Walls is designed to meet that need, through the help of our dedicated volunteers. Please consider volunteering for this program! If you are interested, please print out a Volunteer Liaison Application Packet, opens a new window. Once it is filled out, you can mail it to us or drop it off at your nearest Marin County Free Library branch.

If you have any questions, please call us at 415-233-1498 or contact Civic Center Volunteers at 415-499-7407.
