Hey, kids age 12 and younger!   Read away your library card fines!  

From December 20 - January 3 come to the library to read away your card's fines!  For every 15 minutes that you read at the library you earn a library "buck."   These bucks have no monetary value and you can't exchange them for cash, but you can use them to pay fines and the cost for a replacement library card!   Find out more at the South Beloit Library!

WANT TO BE A BOARD MEMBER?

Dec 9 2014 10:09 am

Our library has an opening for a board member.  Interested?  Please send a letter by mail or in person, or email ddalman@southbeloit.lib.il.us stating your interest in the board, other board experience, and general information about yourself.  The board meets once a month, on the second Monday night at 7 p.m.

HOMEBOUND DELIVERY SERVICE

Our library provides free delivery of circulating materials to homebound residents of the South Beloit Public Library taxing district.   Homebound customers are ones who are homebound either temporarily or permanently due to illness, disability, or age, and physically unable to visit the library.  Homebound customers will complete a Reader's Profile with library staff.  

Due to delivery logistics, there are some limits placed on the level of service provided to homebound customers.  The library can only provide print and audio materials currently on the shelves.  Reserves cannot be placed.

We are unable to deliver or pick up materials not checked out on the homebound customer's library card.

Overdue fines will be waived, but homebound customers are responsible for lost or damaged items.  Circulation guidelines apply to homebound customers.

For customers who do not have a South Beloit Library card, an application can be brought to the customer.  The card will be held at the library while the patron is enrolled in homebound delivery. 

Library staff will work with the homebound customer to determine what materials are selected.  Staff will keep a record of the reading preferences and items delivered.  This record is confidential and is only used to select items the customer will enjoy. 

Customers requesting homebound services must provide a safe and appropriate environment for volunteers or staff members who make deliveries to their homes and customers must protect all library materials while in their custody.  Volunteers or staff members may choose not to enter a home, to leave a home immediately and/or to recommend suspension of the service for any reason.

The library reserves the right to suspend a customer's homebound status once the customer regains the ability to visit the library.
