ITEMS AVAILABLE FOR DELIVERY ARE:
Regular Print Books
Large Print Books
Books on Compact Disk
Television Series on DVD

Classic Movies on DVD
Exercise DVDs for Seniors & Those with Disabilities

 

If you would like Ms. Sumner to contact you for any service, please contact her at esumner@cumberlandlibrary.org or 333-2552 x131.  When contacting her, please provide your name, the name of the person she would be delivering items to, and a phone number where you can be reached during the day to discuss setting up home delivery services.

You may also be able to obtain audio materials through the Talking Books Plus Program.  This program is administered by the Rhode Island Office of Library and Information Services.  It is designed to bring reading materials to those patrons who have low or no vision and like to read.  The library can assist anyone interested in receiving this service.  Please visit the Talking Books Plus site for further information if you are interested.
