Friendly Visitor Program

The Johnson City Public Library’s Friendly Visitor Program is designed to bring library services to citizens of Johnson City who cannot reach the library due to a disability. Anyone living in the Johnson City area that is determined homebound for any amount of time by their doctor or qualified caregiver is eligible to receive Friendly Visitor services. Volunteers deliver books and other library materials to homebound citizens, and may stay for a visit. The JCPL Friendly Visitor Program serves as a vital link between homebound citizens, their library, and their community. The Johnson City Public Library staff and volunteers work together to deliver the library services and community information homebound patrons need to stay connected.
