The Russell County Public Library provides delivery of books and other materials to homebound patrons of any age who cannot visit the Library because of physical difficulties, including temporary disabilities.  Outreach services are also available to daycares and other local agencies on a monthly basis. Materials available for delivery include hardback and paperback books, large print books, and audiobooks. 

To begin receiving outreach services, please contact Outreach Services Coordinator Jesse Murrell at (270) 343-7323 or at

Kentucky Talking Book Library

Blind and otherwise physically handicapped patrons may be eligible to receive a free electronic audiobook reader from the Kentucky Talking Book Library (KTBL).  RCPL will act as a mediator between the patron and KTBL, providing the audiobook machine and headphones needed, as well as ordering and delivering the patron’s audiobooks.  

For more information or to apply for a talking book machine, visit the Kentucky Department for Library and Archives website.
