Call for takeout from your library

The Friends of Huntington Memorial Library offer a home delivery service to individuals who are not able to visit the library. Volunteers deliver and pick up materials as needed. The library offers books, large-print books, books on CD, and more. 

If you or someone you know would like to take advantage of this service, which is offered in the Oneonta area, please call Marie Bruni at 432-1980. You’ll be asked about the types of things you like to read or listen to, how many items you would like at a time, how often you’d like to have home delivery, and a few other simple questions. We have many individuals who are in nursing homes, or unable to get out of their homes who use the service, and it is well-liked. We’re here to help you, so give us a call
