Homebound Service ToolKit - Texas

Libraries have a long tradition of providing outreach to underserved populations and are committed to providing access to all, even people who are unable to travel to the library. This ToolKit, developed in 2011 by North Texas Library Partners (NTLP) with a grant from the Texas State Library and Archives Commission, provides useful information for libraries wishing to develop, improve, or expand library services to homebound individuals.

The ToolKit was developed from data collected over the course of a year-long Homebound Project with three public libraries of varying sizes, and is aimed at libraries of all sizes wishing to develop or expand outreach programs to homebound individuals in rural, suburban, and urban settings.
