[ARCHIVED] ROPL Announces New Homebound Services

The Royal Oak Public Library Homebound Service program helps fulfill the library’s mission by offering services to residents who are homebound due to disability or illness and are physically unable to visit the library. Patrons must have a ROPL library card to qualify for this service. Patrons must complete an application and have it certified by their physician, nurse, clergy person, or social worker. Applications will then be processed by library staff and the patron notified of the beginning service date. The Library will mail up to three items at a time to patrons, along with a return-postage address label. Additional materials may be requested and sent after the current items checked out are returned. Patrons participating in the program will become ineligible for the service, and responsible for the cost of the items, if they do not return library materials.


  • Fill out the Royal Oak Public Library Homebound Service Application, including the Certification, which is to be signed by a physician, nurse, clergy person, or social worker. Please have the signee note whether the applicant is permanently or temporarily unable to travel to the library. Medical details are not necessary.
  • Fill out the Reader’s Profile Survey
  • Sign the Opt in Agreement, if you desire this option
