Library staff and volunteers can deliver books, audio books, and CDs to your home!
Words on Wheels = Home Delivery
Are you or is someone you know a resident of Torrance who cannot get to the library?
Would you like library books and/or listening materials delivered to your home?
The Torrance Public Library has volunteers who will deliver the materials you like-books (including large print), audiobooks (cassette or CD), and music.
Based on your interests, your volunteer will select material and will schedule a regular delivery and pick-up time.
Talking books and machines from the Braille Institute are temporarily unavailable, but portable cassette and CD players are available to loan.
WOW delivery service is available to adults and children, and volunteers can deliver to private or group homes, retirement facilities, hospices, or even to the hospital.
