The Library provides special services to people who are homebound and/or cannot read printed material. Outreach Services staff conduct consultations with patrons to determine both their needs and interests so they can then make recommendations as to the most appropriate items to borrow from the Library.

Outreach patrons can access any items from the Library collection (some restrictions may apply). Of special interest to Outreach patrons may be:
Assistive Technology
Regina Public Library prides itself on being accessible to all citizens of Regina in terms of the materials we provide and the services we offer. To further this goal, we have added a number of Assistive Technologies across our entire branch network. These include screen reader software, high contract keyboards, print magnifiers and more.

Walk-in Service
For patrons who have a reading disability, vision loss or physical disability, which prevents them from reading printed material. Patrons may visit the Outreach Services office in person, or have a family member or friend pick-up their selections. After you have registered with the Outreach Unit we will send your selections to whichever Library branch is most convenient for you.

Home Reader Service
For Regina residents who, for reason of ill health or disability, cannot visit the Library. This service is for those who are unable to leave their homes for a period of three months or longer.

Institutional & Private Care Home Service
Service is available to Regina residents for Care facilities, and seniors' homes. Outreach Services staff can provide a carefully selected collection of Library materials for use within the facilities that have registered for this service. Of special interest to groups may be:
  • Recreational Activity Kits
    For use in programming in facilities.
    What is in a kit? Each kit may include discussion starters, slides, video, skits, cassettes, song sheets, various items that spark memories. Program suggestions that you can use with little or no cost to expand your single program into a whole series. For more information call the Outreach Special Services Unit at 777-6019, or send us email.
