Silver Reader

Perhaps you are new to Harford County or curious about the Silver Reader vehicle you may have seen traveling around the county. Silver Reader has been providing a special service to the seniors of our county since February, 2006.

Harford County Public Library is aware of the growing senior population in our community. While many seniors are active and mobile, there are also those who cannot easily get to a library branch. Silver Reader travels to assisted living facilities, long term care facilities, senior centers and senior apartment locations throughout Harford County. In this way, many individuals and groups that are not currently served at branch locations can enjoy access to Harford County Public Library resources. Customers can use existing library cards to borrow materials from the vehicle. Silver Reader staff are able provide library cards to new library customers as well. Materials can be returned on Silver Reader’s next scheduled visit (every 3 weeks) or dropped off at any Harford County Public Library branch.

This growing service currently visits over twenty locations providing material such as large print and regular print books, audiobooks on CD, self-contained audiobooks ‘playaways’, educational and entertainment DVDs, and music CDs. For more information about this service, please contact the Silver Reader office at (410) 638-3151 ext. 6352.
