What is Outreach?
Outreach is the area of Anderson Public Library’s Adult Services that is devoted to traveling throughout and connecting with our community, delivering services and materials that are engaging, informative and life-enriching to members where they reside.
Though COVID-19 has currently placed limitations on some library services, we continue to deliver a selection of materials including books, audiobooks, magazines, DVDs, crafts, and more–right to your door, completely for free!
We also serve our local nursing home, senior center, and assisted living facility.
We look forward to resuming informative and entertaining programs as state guidelines allow.
