Homebound Services' primary mission is to deliver library materials for free to Philadelphians who are unable to leave their homes due to their unique circumstances. We take applications for a homebound library card over the telephone. The homebound card has an extended loan period of up to six weeks, and we levy no fines on overdue materials. Homebound card holders may request specific books by title, or librarians will provide assistance in selecting books by interest.
