Outreach Services

The library provides a variety of outreach services to the community.

Seniors and Homebound Patrons

Through the library’s “Books on the Go” service, library items are delivered to four senior residences (Evergreen Manor, Grace Lodge, Phoenix Villa, and Rhine Haus) every other week.  We bring large-print books & magazines, audiobooks, music and movies.  The library also partners with the Oneida County Department on Aging (OCDA) to provide library items to homebound individuals in conjunction with the OCDA’s home-delivered meals program.

For more information on library services to seniors and homebound patrons, call our outreach librarian at 715-365-1070, extension 1083 or e-mail rhineout@rhinelanderlibrary.org.  Click here for more local and national senior resources.

Schools and Daycare Centers

School classes and child care groups are greatly encouraged to visit the library for tours, storytimes, research, or to checkout library materials.  If you can’t make it to us we will happily come to you!  Library staff will make 20 to 30 minute visits to your classroom to talk about the public library and to conduct storytimes.  To schedule a visit or for more information stop by the children’s department or telephone 715-365-1079, extension 2 or e-mail the children’s librarian at hurlburt@rhinelanderlibrary.org.
