Homebound Delivery

The Friends of the Library offer book and book on tape delivery to those who are homebound. Any New Gloucester resident who is homebound qualifies for this program. You do not need to be permanently homebound to use this service. If you are home after a surgery or other illness, a temporary delivery service can be arranged.

To sign up for Homebound service, all you have to do is call the library at 926-4840 and let them know you are interested in this service. After that, you can select books using the library online catalog (see the Library website for details). One of the Friends will then call you to see exactly where you live. Then just sit back and wait for the books to be delivered to your door.

A Message from the Friends

We're the Friends of the New Gloucester Library. We are a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to raise and distribute funds to support library programs and materials that are not funded through the Town budget. Every October and February we hold a Book and Bake Sale. Money from these sales has purchased children's and young adult books, and reference materials for the library. We also sponsor several library programs, including Maine Wildlife park passes for library patrons. One of our services is the delivery of books to the homebound (please see the library website under (Homebound Delivery).

We love to see all our Friends at our events and programs. However, we realize that with such busy lives you may not be able to attend meetings or various events and that's all right. Friends may help out in other ways. They can make donations of time to an event, bake for or help out at book sales, do mailings, or help out in the library. And of course; we always appreciate your ideas for how the Friends can support our library, so please feel free to email us at
