Outreach Services


Did you know that people in more than 30 senior living facilities, nursing homes and adult care centers in Fairfax County enjoyed library services last year? Through the outreach program of the library’s Access Services branch, almost 14,000 books and other library material were loaned to residents in various facilities through its book deposit program. Access Services staff provide a selection of material to facilities on a rotating basis. The material is borrowed and returned at each residence. In addition, some customers who are unable to travel to their library branch, receive their books via a home delivery service.

This is but one of the many services Access Services offers. The branch also provides talking books through the Library of Congress National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped. Individuals who are unable to read or use standard print due to permanent or temporary blindness, visual impairment, or physical limitations have access to more than 500,000 titles through onsite, local and international catalogs. Recorded books and other materials, as well as machines for playing them, are sent through the mail to qualified users.

To learn more about the array of other resources and services available through Access Services for those who cannot visit a library branch due to disability, call 703-324-8380; TTY 711 or 703-324-8365.
