Book Buddy & Homebound Services

Our Books Make House Calls


The Nevada County Community Library Book Buddy program provides library materials to residents who live in Western Nevada County and cannot come to the Library. The service, provided free of charge, is one-on-one between the Book Buddy volunteer and the homebound individual. The Book Buddy delivers and picks up materials for the homebound individual.

Braille & Talking Book Library


The California State Braille and Talking Book Library (BTBL) has braille and audio book titles similar to what you would find at your public library and also offers magazines, movies, newspapers and more! Services are free to all eligible readers.

Books (and the equipment needed to use the library's audio books) are mailed postage-free to and from library patrons. There are no fines or fees for overdue or lost materials. Eligible readers include Northern California residents who cannot read standard print material in the usual manner due to visual, physical, or organic dysfunction.
