Some of our neighbors may have difficulty getting to the library, so we go to them.
WCPL Outreach takes the library on the road.
Reach Out and Read (ROAR)
ROAR serves nursing homes, rest homes, senior centers and assisted living facilities in Washington County.
Instead of each person “checking out” items from the library, Pattie, our Outreach Coordinator, delivers boxes to each facility for the residents to share. The boxes are hand-picked based on what the residents like best.
When the ROAR patrons return one shipment, we deliver another, so they always have something interesting to enjoy.
Box O’ Books
Our Box O’ Books program serves licensed daycare, preschool, and child care providers throughout Washington County.
Pattie picks out special materials to help small children learn and delivers them in a Box O’ Books.
Agencies in Box O’ Books and ROAR are not charged overdue fees, but we appreciate the timely return of boxes so others can enjoy them.
Homebound Books By Mail
Homebound Books by Mail provides books and other materials to people in Washington County who cannot visit one of our libraries due to a temporary or long-term medical or physical disability or because they have no transportation.
Activities & Programs
We do more than drop off books and movies at different locations. We make sure our outreach patrons who can’t make it to the library don’t miss out on library programs.
We offer arts and crafts, poetry and short story readings, and other fun activities to our outreach patrons.
