Visiting Library Service

Visiting Library Service is a free service available to anyone in Barrie or Oro-Medonte unable to visit the library in person. Staff will help you make great selections, and our volunteers will deliver the library materials right to your home! 

You can use Visiting Library Service on a temporary basis if, for example, you are recovering from surgery, at home with multiple newborn babies or housebound in the winter.

Some specialized format items are available for those who find it difficult to use standard print material. Please mention any special requirements you might have when you contact us.
