Arrange for delivery to your home

We will deliver library materials to residents who can't come to the library due to disability or illness. Materials available for delivery include books, large print books and books on CD. Because we have longer checkout periods for our Home Word Bound patrons, we can't deliver new books and DVDs.

This service is for residents of the Fox River Valley Public Library District with no other means of receiving library services. Questions? Call Anna at (847) 428-3661, ext. 5836.


Donate Books
Only at the Dundee Library (555 Barrington Ave., East Dundee)

We welcome your clean and gently used adult and children's books, music CDs, DVDs, books on cassette or CD, and large print materials. To donate your items, simply drop them off at the account services desk. You will receive a form for tax deductions if you wish. Please do not use the book return slots for your donations.

These items are sold to the public at the Friends of Library annual book sales to raise money to supplement needs that are not covered in the library’s yearly budget. These funds have allowed the library to offer adult programs, tours for every second grade class in our district, and much more. The next sale is October 16-18, 2014.

Questions?  Call (847) 428-3661, press 5, or email frvpldfriends@comcast.net.
