Home Delivery


Let us bring the Library to you! The St. Louis Public Library is temporarily piloting a home delivery service to make sure all of our Customers have access to Library resources--even if they cannot physically make it to a Library. 

Who is eligible?
To be eligible, Customers must live in St. Louis City, and be physically unable to access a Library location for curbside or walk-up services due to a disability or mobility issues or fall into an increased risk category for COVID-19. Customers who do not meet these criteria can use our curbside and walk-up services. 

How can I sign up?
If you qualify and would like the Library to make a monthly materials delivery, please call 314-338-7592 and ask for Home Delivery or email homedelivery@slpl.org to sign up. After you sign up, the Staff will explain how to request materials. 

What materials can I have delivered?
You can request any item in our catalog for home delivery, except for telescopes. We can also deliver print or copy requests, Take & Make crafts and more. When placing items on hold in our catalog, just select "Adult Outreach" as your pick up location.

When can I get my materials?
When you sign up, we will schedule a recurring monthly delivery. At this time, we will bring any materials you’ve requested that are available and pick up materials you want to return. You must be home at the time of delivery to receive your materials. 

What COVID-19 precautions are you taking?
All Library Staff complete a health screening before reporting to work. All of our drivers wear face masks and gloves during deliveries and pickups. We also ask Customers to wear face masks during the delivery. All returned materials will be quarantined for four days.
