Home Delivery Program
WAPL Home Delivery Program FAQs
Who can get home delivery?
Any resident of West Allis who is confined to their home, temporarily or permanently, due to illness, injury or disability, and does not have someone who can come to the library for them.
How do I get started?
Submit an interest form on our website or call us at (414) 302-8500. We will mail you a welcome packet with a program application, a library card application, and a letter for your doctor to sign verifying your barriers to accessing the library. Mail back the completed materials in the stamped envelope included in your packet.
How does the program work?
After the application is approved, a librarian will contact you to confirm your reading/listening interests and schedule your first delivery. They will choose items for you and check them out to your account. Then they will bring items to your home and pick up items from previous deliveries.
How often can I get a delivery?
Deliveries take place on Thursdays. When signing up, you can choose if you want delivery every month or every other month.
Is there a cost?
No. Overdue fines are not charged. However, you may be charged for lost or severely damaged materials at the discretion of the Head of Adult Services.
What can I have delivered?
Books (except new fiction), large print books, audiobooks and music CDs. Only materials available at the West Allis Public Library are eligible, but requests for purchase will be considered for items that the library does not own.
