STANISLAUS COUNTY LIBRARY In the Home Delivery Program, volunteers select, check out, deliver and return library materials for home borrows who are unable to visit the library themselves. Providing monthly in-home visits and materials gives a person of advanced age or disabling illness quality of life and independence and enables the volunteer to meet and gain new friends. Flexible scheduling is arranged between the volunteer and the patron. Volunteers must have a California driver's license and car insurance, be at least 21 and pass a background check.
