Library by Mail Available for Homebound Patrons

Starting April 14th, Cass County Public Library will offer Library by Mail to homebound residents of Cass County. Patrons can qualify for this new service if they are unable to visit the library due to health, mobility, advanced age, visual impairment, blindness, physical disability, or permanent or temporary incapacity. Applications can be picked up at any Cass County Public Library branch or submitted online at Patrons can also request an application be sent to them by calling Library by Mail staff at 816-258-2244. The application includes a certification form, completed by a healthcare professional or professional caregiver.

Another service made possible by Proposition L, Library by Mail will bring the library directly to Cass County residents, even if they can’t visit the library. Patrons will be able to request items by talking directly with library staff. Then, within a few days, they will receive a sealed blue bag in their mailbox. When patrons are finished with the materials, they can turn the address label around and drop it back in the mail, free of charge!

Library by Mail will be available to homebound persons who live in Cass County. Homebound patrons can have up to 10 items checked out for 6 weeks. The library can send large print materials, audiobooks, playaways, DVDs, Braille materials, and even materials with dyslexia-friendly text, if available. If you know an individual who would benefit from this service, pick up an application for them or have them call 816-258-2244. If an individual already receives materials from the Wolfner Talking Book and Braille Library, this will not interfere with that service. Our patrons can enjoy both services at the same time.
