The Carver County Public Library has free delivery of materials to persons
who are physically unable to visit the library, including the elderly, the
disabled, and those who are temporarily incapacitated by illness or
accident. We deliver books to retirement housing, senior centers, and private
residences. You may request books or have a library volunteer or librarian
select them according to your interests. A home delivery is then scheduled.
