ENLITE Outreach Service

An ENLITE volunteer delivers books to an elderly library patron seated in a wheelchair inside her apartment.

The Newton Public Library ENLITE outreach service connects Harvey County adults 60+ years of age with library items. The extensive large print collection is a key part of the project, offering a wide variety of books ranging from westerns, romance, mysteries, Christian and general fiction and animal stories to bestsellers and biographies.

Delivery service is available for those who:

  • are 60 or more years of age
  • live in Newton or North Newton
  • have difficulty reaching Newton Public Library from a residence
  • or live in one of the following:  Asbury Park Retirement Community, Kansas Christian Home, Kidron Bethel Retirement Village, Midtown Towers, Newton Plaza Apartments, Presbyterian Manor, Wheatland Homes

Books are selected for each visit by NPL ENLITE staff members, who match them with the participants’ interests.

The large print collection is available for libraries in Harvey County to circulate to their readers.

Those interested may contact the Newton Public Library with questions or a request to begin service.
