Home Library Volunteer Drivers

Home Library Volunteers deliver books and other Library materials to residents of Innisfil once a month. The Volunteers pick-up bags of materials selected and prepared by the Staff Home Library Service Coordinator and deliver them directly to the homes of residents who are unable to visit the Library. During the same visit, Volunteers pick-up the previous delivery of materials and return them to the Library on the same day. All deliveries are contact-free.

This service is very important to the residents who use it. It provides them with reading materials that stimulate them mentally, keep their reading skills active, provides them with an engaging activity they can do at home, and provides some peace of mind to family members.
