Home Delivery (Extension Services)

How does it work?

Library patrons can sign up to have library materials delivered. Whether you only require this service temporary, seasonally, or long-term, the Pembroke Public Library offers this program year round.

Tell us your general “likes” and “dislikes”, and a library staff member will find you suitable author read alikes (books in the same genre or style of writing).If you have a particular series in mind, and it’s not on the shelf at Pembroke Public Library, we can use our inter-library loan service to acquire the rest of the books in the series for you. Keep in touch with Library staff and send us your book request lists with new or upcoming book recommendations.
