Whether you are unable to visit us in person, or simply enjoy seeing us when we're out and about, we have options for you!
You can also request we visit your school or community event.
Can't visit us in person for medical or physical reasons? No worries! We deliver to you with our Homebound Delivery Service!

Homebound Delivery FAQ
Our Homebound service delivers any of our WBRL materials to our patrons/residents who are unable to access our facilities due to medical, physical, or visual issues. We bring the library to you! Deliveries are weekly.
It doesn’t cost a thing! Our Homebound service is free of charge for individuals who cannot visit our facilities (e.g. Medical reasons, disabilities, illness, severe arthritis, heart conditions, vision issues, etc.).
No, our homebound service is not limited by age. Anyone who can’t physically use our facilities can take advantage of this service. (mobility, health, vision, etc.)
Volunteers and library staff will choose materials based on individual profiles; patrons can also make requests. Interlibrary loans can also be used to access materials province wide. We work hard to get you materials that match your specific interests and always take suggestions and requests.
Our mini libraries go into hibernation over the winter months, as of October.
We are thrilled to have 4 mini libraries in our community, thanks to a partnership with TransCanada, Wood Buffalo Regional Library, Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo, and Fort McMurray Today.
