book-pages-heartWho is eligible for Deposit Delivery?

The Rochester Public Library Deposit Program brings library services to those who have barriers to getting to the main library and are served by programs in facilities. Examples include daycares, nursing homes, senior living facilities, retirement centers and other residential facilities. [printable brochure]

How do you decide on what items to send?

When an agency registers, a profile is developed.  This profile includes total number of library items the agency would like to receive along with the genre, print type and material format preferred. This profile can be changed by the requesting agency at any time. Individual residents can call the library’s Readers Services division at 507.328.2318 to request specific items.  Those items will be included with the agency’s regular delivery.

What are the Agencies' responsibilities?

Agency staff must provide shelving for the library materials and manage their return.   Each month the materials to be returned must be boxed in the containers provided and a courier will exchange these with boxes of new materials.  The agency is also responsible for getting individual requests to their residents.

How are the materials chosen?

Each month a volunteer selects materials using the profile.

How often are materials delivered?

Library materials are delivered every four weeks on a Friday by a courier service. When the delivery date falls on a holiday, an alternate date will be determined.

Is there any charge for this program?

No. This service is provided free for residents of Olmsted County, with the help of library volunteers.  We do ask the agency staff to assist in the return of materials and help with locating missing items.
