Homebound Delivery

The Cresskill Library now provides free delivery service to Cresskill residents who are unable to visit the library due to medical or physical disabilities.

Any person residing within Cresskill who is unable to come to the library because of limited mobility, illness, or handicap may request homebound delivery. A Cresskill library card is required to obtain this service. Homebound patrons that do not have a valid library card must obtain one by providing proof that they reside in the borough.

In order to receive homebound services, the patron must participate in an interview with library staff in order to establish eligibility and to fill out the questionnaire. The patron may request specific titles, or indicate reading preferences on the questionnaire (including genre, author, etc.) to help the staff select materials for the patron.

Library materials will be delivered to the homebound patron’s residence by a member of the library staff. The deliveries will take place twice per month. The staff member will also pick up materials from the homebound patron’s residence during scheduled deliveries. Homebound patrons may check out up to 10 items at a time. Participants in this program will not be held responsible for overdue fines, however other policies regarding lost or damaged materials will apply. Only items owned by Cresskill library will be eligible for delivery through this program.

Participants may request items via telephone, fax, or through the online library catalog.

To register, contact the library by calling 201-567-3521, or download and fill out the forms on this page and return to the library.
