Patrons may either come to the library to pick up their own books or the books can be sent out in the mail free of charge going and returning.
Deposit collections are also available for use by residents of nursing facilities (ie. convalescence homes, nursing homes, hospitals) and for individuals in facilities such as senior citizen centers and schools. The collections are housed in the various facilities or in public libraries. These collections are periodically changed to provide readers with a variety of reading materials.
Georgians have access to a free national library program that offers Braille and recorded materials. The materials are provided to eligible visually and physically handicapped persons.
