The Kaukauna Public Library believe that archiving and sharing our local stories will be of great value to future research, understanding, and our community as a whole.  In an effort to compile an inclusive perspective of these historic events related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we are asking residents to share their stories. Selected stories will be archived and cataloged in our Local History Room.

To be eligable for the homebound service, you must be a resident of Kaukauna.  "Homebound" is defined as being generally confined to the residence/facility either temporarily due to illness or accident, or permanently, due to age, disability or mobility problems.  Once a need for this service is established, the Library will pair the individual in need with a Library volunteer.  To begin the process of receiving this service, please click on the attachment titled: Homebound Patron Packet.   

To volunteer for this program as a book deliverer, please fill out the volunteer application form.   This volunteer opportunity requires the volunteer to bring books at

 least once a month to a homebound patron. Once this form is turned in, it may take several weeks for the background check to be completed.  Once the background check is completed, volunteers will be paired with a homebound patron.  At this time, there are currently no homebound patrons waiting for volunteers, so it may be weeks or months before you would be assigned a homebound patron.  For more infomration on this volunteer opportunity, please click on the attachment titled: Volunteer Packet.
