Would you like to use the Library but are not able to get here? If health or transportation issues keep you from coming to the Library, our Home Delivery Service will bring the Library to you!

To get started fill out a Registration form that will tell us what kind of books you like to read or listen to, or the kind of movies you enjoy and our staff and volunteers will select up to 15 items especially for you. A volunteer will then deliver them to your home. You can keep them for a month and then a volunteer will come and pick them up and bring you another bag. This free service for Marlborough residents is sponsored by the Friends of the Marlborough Public Library.

You have four options for filling out the Home Delivery Registration form. You may apply in person in the library, print and fill out our Application for Home Delivery, call the library at 508-624-6900 and as to have an application mailed to you, or fill out our Online Home Delivery Application below.

If you would like to volunteer to deliver bags please fill out a Driver Form and we will contact you.
