Patrons looks at the books on the outreach table


The Thelma Brown Memorial Outreach Services provide library services & materials for underserved populations with a focus on seniors, children & the homebound.

The West Lafayette Public Library Outreach Services are named in honor of Thelma Brown, a longtime supporter of the Library & member of the Friends of the Library.




Community Outreach includes service to:


Senior Facilities

We deliver patron requests and a browsing collection to local senior facilities on a bi-weekly schedule.

Daycare Facilities

We deliver age appropriate books to local daycare facilities on a bi-weekly schedule for use at school.

Homebound Patrons

We deliver library materials to patrons residing in the jurisdiction of The West Lafayette Public Library who are unable to visit the library due to disability, age or extended illness.
