Tigard Public Library

Homebound Services

Do you know someone who can't get to the Library? The Tigard Public Library can help! We offer free access to library materials for qualified homebound residents.

Friendly Visitor Homebound Service

Do you know a reader who can't get to the library? 
Tell them about the Tigard Library's Friendly Visitor Services! The program matches volunteers with people who can't visit the library on their own. A Friendly Visitor will come to your home and deliver library materials.

The service is free and offered to area residents recovering from an illness or injury, to persons who no longer drive, and to people who live in long-term care facilities. 

Friendly Visitor Volunteers have been screened by the Oregon State Police and are ready to bring you or a loved one large print books, audiobooks, and more. 

Want to use this service? Start by downloading a Friendly Visitor Patron Application.
