LA CROSSE, WIS. (WXOW) - The winter season can make it hard for seniors and people with disabilities to get out of the house. Luckily, the La Crosse Public Library has a way to keep them engaged.
The library offers a free home delivery program.
The program is run by community volunteers who give their time to people who have a love of reading. Volunteers learn what type of books their clients like and bring options to their house.
They are linked up with just one client so they can build lasting relationships, and these relationships can make it easier on the clients family.
"The family doesn't have to do this part for their loved one, we volunteer as part of the library to take care of whatever they want to read and it seems to work," said volunteer, Ellen Verwiebe.
This is the 6th year of the free program.
If interested in the service or volunteering you can call volunteer coordinator, Heather Miller at (608) 789-7100
