The Friends of the Lincoln Public Library offer a weekly delivery service for people who are unable to come to the library in person. People who are temporarily immobilized as well as those with chronic physical limitations may use the service.
Patrons may order up to six library items at one time (including DVDS, CDs, Spoken Word CDs, and two-week new releases). Patrons with Internet access may use the Minuteman online catalog to request materials. Residents without internet access may call the library and request either specific material (ie: please send me "A is for Alibi") or general selections (ie: please send me five mysteries by women authors).
When the library calls to indicate selections are available, the patron should ask the library staff member to have the Friends deliver the material. Deliveries will be made on Tuesdays or Wednesdays. Patrons will be called to make sure that someone is home to accept the delivery. Items to be returned will be picked up when deliveries are made.
Patrons who wish to use this service and have questions can contact either the circulation desk at the library (781-259-8465) or Belinda Gingrich of the Friends (781-577-7004).
