Homebound Services

Novel Journeys

The Andover Public Library has teamed up with the Andover Rotary Club for a project called “Novel Journeys”. Once a month the Rotary members deliver books from the library to people in the community who have physical limitations or transportation challenges that make it difficult to visit the library on a regular basis. If you or someone you know would like to be a part of this special service fill out the application here  and return it to APL.
