Books by Mail is a free service that delivers library materials to Yolo County residents through the mail. This program is designed for residents that are prevented from visiting a Yolo County Library branch due to a disability, illness, or lack of regular transportation.
After completing an application and speaking with library staff, residents can request specific materials be mailed to them directly and may even request that library staff select materials for them based on personal interest. To learn more about this free service, contact Books by Mail staff at: (530) 757-5583 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Home delivered meals are delivered by volunteers, Monday – Friday, between 10:45am – 12noon. Eligibility for this service is determined by our Home Delivered Meals Coordinator, who oversees this program. Those who are eligible must exhibit at least one of the following conditions:
- Be homebound: The senior needs assistance to leave the home.

Seniors who have been recently discharged from the hospital receive priority, whether receiving meals temporarily or for a longer term.
Seniors 60+ look forward to gathering for lunch each weekday. The opportunity to socialize with peers is as important a part of the program as the meal itself. Congregate meals are offered at the 664 Cummins Way site in West Sacramento in one seating at 11:30 am. The site is on the Route 40 YoloBus route at Cummins Way at Reuter bus stop.
Many seniors suffer from depression and loneliness and need a reason to leave their homes. At the site, the coffee pot is on, there is a pool table and open computers for use, and time to 'just chat' before and after lunchtime. Social contact with friends and acquaintances is an important component of the congregate dining experience. Seniors are encouraged to contribute financially what they are able, but the program does not have a certain price for the meal; if they are able to make a contribution in any amount, it is appreciated.
Monthly menus are available at the site, or on the Meals on Wheels Yolo County website: https://mowyolo.org/calendar.
Reservations for a meal must be made at least 24 hours in advance at 916-373-5805, where you can also get more information about eligibility for the program.
