Home Delivery

The Teaneck Public Library offers its patrons a delivery service for persons confined to their home or residential facility for an extended period because of illness or physical handicap. The library makes available books, magazines, and audio-visual material and delivers once a week to the homes of those unable to come to the library.

Those eligible for delivery service must be Teaneck residents and have no one available in the household to come to the library for them. These patrons are issued a special card to be held in the library, and are subject to the same loan periods and to replacement charges for lost or missing items as other library patrons. Home Delivery will be limited to 2 books per person at a time. If you lose a book, you will be responsible for the charge.

Deliveries are made on Thursday mornings only, between 9:00 and 12:00. Those who are temporarily disabled may also be eligible for this service.

For more information please contact Cynthia Zimmerly at the library (201-837-4171). For 50 years this outreach program has been available at the Teaneck Library and has successfully assisted many Teaneck residents to remain active library users even when no longer able to come to the library in person.
