The Annapolis Valley Regional Library offers free deposit services to a variety of eligible institutions, which can benefit from a short-term collection of library materials that are provided and replaced on a regularly-scheduled basis.
Eligible institutions include: retirement residences and nursing homes; licensed childcare facilities [8 or more children] and preschools; and pre-primary classes.
Library materials are selected and prepared by library staff and can include fiction, non-fiction, DVDs, large print, etc. as requested by the facility. Loan periods and delivery schedules are set at three weeks. A designated employee from the receiving facility will arrange and manage the borrowing and care of the materials between deposit and pick-up visits.
There are no fines for overdue items, although replacement costs are expected should materials be damaged or unreturned.
This service is available as collections and schedules allow. If you are interested in receiving deposit service, please complete and submit this form. We will contact you.
