Library Delivery Services

We'll Bring the Library To You

If you or a family member live in Arlington Heights and are unable to visit the library because of a temporary or permanent condition, we can bring the library to you. We can deliver books, music, movies and more for as long as you are unable to visit the library. You may select which items you want to be brought to you, or our staff will select items just for you based on your preferences. Volunteers and staff will deliver library items to your residence on a monthly schedule.

Talking Books

Illinois State Library Talking Books program provides library service to individuals who are unable to read standard print due to a visual or physical impairment. Accessible materials (digital audio and braille books and magazines) are mailed to and from patrons wherever they reside. If you have visual or physical impairments that affect your ability to read standard print, you may be eligible for this program.

Staff at Arlington Heights Library can work with you to complete your Talking Books application and begin receiving materials. 

If your status is Confirmed Registration, your spot for the event is confirmed.

Wait listed registrants are moved to the confirmed registration list (in the order of registration) when cancelations are received. You will receive an email notification if you are moved from the wait list to the confirmed registration list.
