Outreach & Community Service

The Library provides door to door service to patrons with mobility issues that prevent them from coming into the library. We can deliver your personalized selection of books and other resources, then pick them up when you have finished them.

We can also provide service through arrangements with caregivers, family and friends of shut-ins. Our Volunteers take the time to select with you the right resources, whether the format is large print, audio book, electronic magazines, paperbacks,  Music CDs or other items.

Please call us if you or someone you know might benefit from this service.

 

Outreach Visits

 Our library staff reaches out into the community in many ways. School and  daycare visits,   community events and gatherings, Festivals and markets.  If you have an event you would like the library to participate in and offer services, resources or programming, contact us!

 Kimberley  is a special place, with a unique community vision. Whether you are an individual, group, association or school, the library welcomes the opportunity to match our services with your needs.

 If you’d like to make recommendations on where the library services could enrich someone’s life,  please  contact us.

We are willing to create a service, program or presentation to match your needs in the community .

 

Daycare/Caregiver Service

Do you have a special theme each week for stories you read aloud to your group? Would you like help with that?  Or, call with a theme you would like to introduce to your kids  and we can select an assortment  that will be ready for you to pick up.

We support parents in their effort to inspire the love of literacy and learning in their children.  Need some resources to support your  home program?  Let us know the subject you would like to focus on and we can find some great materials for you. Don’t have a topic in mind? You can  leave that to the outreach folks.
