Outreach Services

Outreach is the library's service program for City of Waukesha residents who are homebound. If you are confined to your home because of illness, disability, age or other qualifying circumstance, we bring library materials to you! Most library services that are available to walk-in customers are also available to individuals who are homebound. Outreach customers have access to a wide variety of books, audiobooks, DVDs and other formats from the library's extensive collection.

Our Outreach Library Associate makes approximately 275 scheduled visits per month to Waukesha health care facilities, assisted living facilities, retirement communities, and people residing in their own homes who have no other means of receiving library service. Each request for service is assessed on a case-by-case basis. For more details, please contact Outreach Services at 262-524-3686.

The Wisconsin Talking Book and Braille Library provides free recorded books and playback equipment for those Wisconsin residents who are unable to read normal print, as well as braille materials and audio-described videotapes and DVDs.  Waukesha Public Library is a referral site for this program.
