Library2Go! Traveling Library Center
Services to Senior, Disabled, or Homebound Patrons:
The Library2Go! Traveling Library Center's mission is to provide access to residents of King County who are not able to visit their community libraries due to physical impediments such as age or disability. Using book carts and mobile computers, TLC staff bring the library to you by providing a limited browsing collection, offering reading recommendations and some reference, and delivering requested materials. TLC visits eligible retirement homes, nursing homes, and assisted care facilities once a month.
The Words on Wheels program brings library materials to people in adult family homes or group homes who can't get to the library. Library Volunteers help to make this service possible. Interested in volunteering?
