What We Provide

Visiting Library

The Visiting Library Service is available to patrons who are no longer physically able to come in to the building. A volunteer from Friends of Brighton Public Library will meet with the patron in their home or residence to discuss their reading tastes. Books will then be signed out to the patron and exchanged by the volunteer.

Contact the library or Gina Gillespie 613-848-5421.
