TO LEARN HOW!

How Outreach Works

During COVID, staff will deliver items to patrons’ homes every three weeks on a designated date and time. Until further notice, all deliveries will be contactless, meaning that checked out items will be put in a bag and placed on the doorstep at the scheduled delivery time. To return items, place them in their bag and put them on the doorstep and staff will collect them when dropping off the new bag of items. Please be aware that staff will not approach the home if the door open or someone is outside. This is to limit face to face contact and to keep everyone safe during the pandemic. 

What are the Requirements to Join?

APPLICATIONS ARE ACCEPTED ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS AT THE DISCRETION OF THE PROGRAM LEADER. THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE REQUIREMENTS. APPLICANTS SEEKING AID SHOULD HAVE UNDERSTANDABLE REASON TO DO SO. EXAMPLES INCLUDE PATRONS THAT HAVE TROUBLE MOVING, CANNOT LEAVE HOME, OR CANNOT TAKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT DUE TO ILLNESS, INJURY, OR DISORDER.

Are there Overdue Fees?

THE OUTREACH PROGRAM PROTECTS THOSE IN IT FROM LATE FEES. WE UNDERSTAND THAT LIFE HAPPENS FOR BOTH PATRONS AND OUR STAFF ASSISTING THIS PROGRAM. SOMETIMES TRANSPORTATION MAY BE LATE. CURRENTLY, ALL ITEMS MAY RENEW TWICE UNLESS A HOLD IS PLACED ON THEM. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT YOU ARE STILL RESPONSIBLE FOR LOST OR DAMAGED ITEMS.

Do I Need a Library Card?

YES, A LIBRARY CARD AND ACCOUNT WITH ANY RHODE ISLAND LIBRARY IS NECESSARY. THIS HELPS US TRACK WHICH ITEMS TRAVEL AND AIDS IN DATA COLLECTION. THIS PROGRAM PLACES HOLDS ON THE ITEMS YOU REQUEST AND CHECKS THEM OUT TO YOUR CARD BEFORE DELIVERY. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A LIBRARY CARD, YOU CAN SIGN UP ONLINE HERE.

Can I Join Temporarily?

YES! THE OUTREACH PROGRAM IS NOT INTENDED TO BE A LIFELONG MEMBERSHIP (EVEN THOUGH IT CAN BE). PATRONS WHO LOVE USING OUR LIBRARY AND TEMPORARILY FALL ILL OR INJURED CAN JOIN THE PROGRAM UNTIL THEY RECOVER. PLEASE BE AWARE THAT THIS PROGRAM IS DESIGNED FOR THOSE THAT REALLY NEED IT AND EXPLOITATION WILL RESULT IN TERMINATION.
