Book Buddy volunteers, with the help of Library staff, select materials for each homebound patron based on their interests and special requests. Book Buddy volunteers must be positive, cheerful, enthusiastic and patient. The contact with the homebound match provides vital links of friendship and service.
The Book Buddy and homebound individual will set up a delivery and pickup schedule that is convenient for both of them. Visits are usually scheduled once a month. Book Buddy volunteers give their own time (approximately 4 to 6 hours per month) to serve their homebound patron.
