Home Delivery Expanded to All over Age 65

The Library offers home delivery for Safety Harbor residents of all ages unable to physically visit the library due to illness, disability, or injury. This service is free, available on a long-term or temporary basis. 

The Library has expanded this delivery service to any residents aged 65 and older who are not comfortable visiting the Library. Items are left in bags at your front door for return and pick up. Home delivery patrons can call for advice on what to read or request specific materials. Items are checked out your library card, delivered to your door, and picked-up for return by a library ambassador on a bi-monthly basis. If you need a library card, we can assist.  

For more information or to register for home delivery service, visit the Outreach page for an application, email outreach@cityofsafetyharbor.com, or call 727-724-1525 x 4107.
