If you are temporarily or permanently homebound, the Rock Island Public Library offers a variety of ways to get materials.

Digital Content is available to help you read, watch, listen, and learn from the comfort of your home.
These services are available at any time of day, and are offered at no additional charge to you. A Rock Island Public Library Card is required for access. Please visit the menus under Books, Music and Movies for links to digital content services. if you are looking for learning and research services, visit Online Research Tools.

The RIPL eCard is available for those without a full-access Rock Island Public Library card, who only want to access digital services. To apply, please visit Get a Card for the online application. Recipients must be residents of our Rock Island or extended Milan area service areas. (Milan-Blackhawk Area Public Library District.)

You may designate a representative to pick up and return materials for you. Please contact our Circulation Department at 309-732-7323 to add a representative to your library account.

For those without access to the above methods, RIPL Homebound Resources will bring materials to qualified Rock Island and Milan residents. Patrons may put items on hold for delivery by our staff, or sign up for personalized book picks from our librarians. Delivery/pick up will be available once per week or once per month, with the time set by appointment.
