|Home Delivery Service|
|Can't get to the library? We can come to you! The Visiting Library Service is a free service for people who are unable to visit the library due to age, illness or disability.
We will select library items for you based on your interests, and you may request specific items. You may borrow books, audiobooks, DVDs and magazines through the service. A library volunteer will deliver to your home.
To register for the service please contact Community Outreach Services or complete the Visiting Library Service Form. [hyperlink to online form]
|Older Adult Advisory Group|
|The Guelph Public Library's Older Adult Advisory Group (OAAG) was established to help improve library services, collections and programs for older adults. The group meets four times a year and advises the library on how to best serve the city's growing older population and its diverse needs. When the library is looking for new older adult advisory group members, information will be posted on the volunteer page.|
