Elderlibraries logoElderlibraries was begun by a grant from Meyer Memorial Foundation, and is here to bring library books to our local seniors, disabled, and homebound facilities. Serving folks who are not able to come to the library.

Elderlibraries uses volunteers to visit with individual residents at an assigned facility. The volunteer selects and takes books to various residents and returns the items to the library on the due date or when the resident is finished with the item. Volunteers may also help by reading to residents who can no longer enjoy reading on their own.

Volunteers are also needed for the book shift that occurs once every three months. We have rotating collections that are placed at several facilities: Rocking D Residential Care, Hermiston Terrace, Sun Terrace Hermiston, Rose Arbor Assisted Living, and Regency Hermiston (formerly Good Samaritan).
