Home Delivery

Lincoln Library offers free home delivery to any person who is temporarily or permanently unable to come to the library because of illness, disability or other factors, and lives within Springfield’s corporate limits. If you live outside the corporate limits and are not served by another library, you may still qualify for service by paying the annual non-resident fee.

Deliveries are generally made once every two weeks to homes, and once every four weeks to high-rises and retirement communities.

Materials Eligible for Delivery

  • Books in regular and large print
  • Audiobooks
  • DVDs
  • CDs
  • Magazines

Request specific items, or let us know of your preferences and a librarian will choose materials for you. Materials are checked out on the card belonging to the person receiving the service.
