Home Library Service

The Home Library Service is a convenient way for library members who may have difficulty leaving their homes to borrow books and other library items. Our Friends of the Library provide this free monthly service to residents of Trail and Warfield who are homebound for at least 90 days due to age, illness or disability.

How do I register for Home Library Service?

Library members may register for the HLS using either of the following methods:

  • Visit the Trail Library to pick up a paper registration form
