Carroll County Public Library provides service to Independent Senior communities, Assisted Living facilities, Long-term Care facilities, and Adult Medical Day Care facilities in Carroll County.
Independent Senior communities are served by a bookmobile with a browsing collection of library materials. A librarian is available to assist in material selection, take hold requests, and answer questions. New books of all types are on shelves for browsing: fiction and non-fiction in both regular and large print, movies, magazines and recorded books on compact discs. Customers can use their existing Carroll County Public Library card or get a new one. The bookmobile returns three weeks later to pick up items that are due and open its doors for customers once again.
The dependent senior facilities are served by a librarian and volunteers, who work with the Activities Directors and the patrons to create a revolving collection of materials for the facility to borrow to support the interests of the patrons at the facility.
