Visiting Library Service (VLS)

Visiting Library Service (VLS)

Visiting Library Service is a free service available to anyone in Barrie or Oro-Medonte unable to visit the library in person. Staff will help you make great selections, and our volunteers will deliver the library materials right to you! You can use Visiting Library Service on a temporary basis if, for example, you are recovering from surgery or housebound in the winter. 

If you or someone you know can make use of this service, please call us at 705-728-1010 extension 7029 or email us at

Some specialized format items are available for those who find it difficult to use standard print material. Please tell staff about any special requirements you might have.

We're seeking volunteer drivers 

We need drivers to deliver books in Barrie and Oro-Medonte. If you can spare about two hours every three weeks, you can make a difference to those who are homebound and unable to visit the library in person. Volunteer application forms are available at the library or on our Volunteers page.
