Words on Wheels Homebound Service
Mesa County Libraries is dedicated to serving all those who live within our many communities. This encompasses individuals and groups of all ages, as well as those with disabilities, extended illnesses, or any other type of condition which makes it physically impossible to enjoy the benefits our library has to offer.
Our Words on Wheels service is for patrons who are no longer able to bring themselves to a Mesa County Libraries location. On a bi-weekly basis, the Words on Wheels van stops at more than 30 different locations, including many assisted living and retirement homes. From Palisade to Fruita, Words on Wheels delivers fiction and non-fiction books, large print books, audiobooks, magazines, and movies.
To find out whether you, a friend, or a family member is eligible for this service or if you have any other questions about the program, please call 970-243-4442.
Books by Mail Service
Can’t come to the library? Our mail delivery service is for patrons of Mesa County Libraries who live outside one of our regular service areas (e.g. Glade Park). For more information on how to get materials delivered to your rural residence, please call 970-243-4442.
