Partners in Reading for Seniors (PIRS)

Are you or do you know of a homebound senior 60 years or older who is a Brighton resident in need of library services? You may be interested in our service program Partners in Reading for Seniors (PIRS). 

Brighton Memorial Library’s PIRS program matches a homebound Brighton senior citizen with a library volunteer to create a reading partnership. The volunteer partner phones or visits his/her senior partner to receive a request for library materials. These can be books, magazines, or audiovisual materials. The volunteer then selects the materials, charges them out to the senior partner’s library card, and delivers them to the senior partner. When the senior partner is finished with the materials or the due date approaches, the volunteer partner will pick up ​the items for return or renewal. 


If you are homebound and 60 years or older and want to register for PIRS service, please call the library at (585) 784-5300.

If you are interested in becoming a PIRS volunteer to bring materials to the homebound, please fill out our PIRS Volunteer Application. You may turn the application in at any of our service desks.
