No fines will be assessed to homebound customers for late fees because of overlap time from volunteer deliveries; however fees for damaged or lost materials will apply.

Homebound status will resume to regular library customer status upon the recovery of a temporary homebound customer and in the event that the policy/agreement is misused.

Confidentiality Statement
Customers of the Pueblo City-County Library District are able to read, view and listen to whatever they choose and have that information kept confidential. Pueblo City-County Libraries have policies in place to keep only enough customer information that is necessary to do business. I understand that volunteers of the Homebound Program may document and retain a record of the books/materials that have been checked out for the purpose of avoiding duplication. Customer confidentiality is protected by the Colorado State Statute (24-90-119) entitled: Privacy of User Records. In certain circumstances, this may be superseded by the Federal Patriot Act. I have read and understand the Homebound Policy/agreement and in case of loss or damage, I assume financial responsibility for the library materials I receive.

Do you have a few hours per month to help bring the library to homebound customers in your community?
