Outreach is at the heart of the Library's commitment to public service. Outreach Services is an immensely important community connection for some of Kitsap's most isolated residents. If you can no longer visit the Library because of age or disability you may qualify for Kitsap Regional Library's Outreach Services.
The library provides a monthly home visit from a staff member who delivers personally chosen materials for homebound patrons, creating a link between the community and patrons who are otherwise unable to participate in the Library's programs and services. The Library's Outreach staff regularly calls patrons who are enrolled in the program to check on how they like the books and other materials that have been delivered and to select new materials for the next delivery.
Applications for this Outreach service can be obtained by visiting any Kitsap Regional Library location, by calling (360) 405-9123 or online.
At Senior Housing Sites
Available for all residents of the facility to enjoy, Kitsap Regional Library's Outreach Services Department supplies deposit collections at every major senior residential facility in Kitsap County. These collections of large print books include a variety of fiction and non-fiction titles and are changed on a monthly basis to assure that the residents at any one facility have a constantly changing set of titles to choose from.
For more information about deposit collections, call (360) 405-9123.
Outreach Services has its own collection of large-print books and audiobooks. Audio formats include cassette tapes, CDs and Playaways. Additionally, all large-print and audiobooks that are part of the regular Kitsap Regional Library collection are available to Outreach patrons.
