Connections is Sachem Public Library’s service for the selection and delivery of Library materials to the homebound and is available to those who are either permanently or temporarily incapacitated.

Connections Application

Connections

Don’t let a medical condition stop you from using your Library! Have your favorite books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs mailed directly to your home.

Eligibility

Sachem Library District residents, who are physically unable to come to the Library due to illness, age, or disability, are eligible. A doctor’s note is required. Connections is also available on a short-term basis to those who are incapacitated for at least four weeks.

Materials, Selection, and Delivery:

Materials are selected according to the preferences indicated on your application. You may also request specific materials by phone or online. Items are delivered via the U.S. Mail in a prepaid returnable bag.

Loan Period

To allow for items to be received and returned via mail, a grace period of four days is added to the normal due date.

Fees and Fines

Although there is no charge for this program, Connections patrons are responsible for all borrowed materials. Overdue fees do apply for materials received after the grace period.
