Outreach: Bringing the Library to You

With these programs, the library comes to you. The library’s outreach programs expand upon the traditional role of libraries by offering valued services within the community setting.

Adult Outreach Program
This program provides free library services to adult Union County residents who are unable to physically visit the library. Materials—including regular and large print books, recorded books, magazines and information about services for the blind—are delivered on a regular schedule to nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and local penitentiary. The library will assist with applying for audio machines for the visually impaired supplied by the Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.

Children’s Outreach Program
This program provides free library services to preschools, childcare centers, home daycares, after school programs, and women’s shelters. Age-appropriate materials that spark imagination, inspire exploration and learning, offer new ideas, and ignite the reading ritual are delivered on a regular schedule. The program also offers regular story time presentations and programs that focus on building early literacy skills and promoting a lifelong love of learning.

The Children’s Outreach Program offers early childhood information, parent education, emergent literacy, socialization, and family support in a mobile fashion. As a Family Place library, we strive to build upon the knowledge that good health, early learning, parental involvement, and community support play a critical role in a young child’s growth and development.
