Welcome to the Outreach Services Department

The Department also facilitates the flow of library materials among the main library and branches. The Department makes individual deliveries to patrons in private residences, apartment complexes and retirement or nursing homes. Services to institutional settings include Knox Community Hospital, the Knox County Jail and a variety of preschools, daycare centers and Amish schools. The Outreach Services Department also handles the Talking Book Service, in collaboration with the State Library of Ohio and the Regional Library for the Blind and Handicapped in Cleveland.
