Homebound Status:
The temporary or permanent homebound patron can check out any materials that circulate through normal library practices, and up to 5 DVD's, within the Pueblo City-County Library District with extended checkout time of twenty eight days. No fines will be assessed to homebound patrons for late fees because of overlap time from volunteer deliveries; however fees for damaged or lost materials will apply. The library card may be maintained by the homebound office or the customers volunteer for check out purposes. Homebound status will resume to regular library patron status upon the recovery of a temporary homebound patron and in the event that the policy/agreement is misused.
