How does Library by Mail work?
Materials are delivered in a bag to your residence via the US Postal service. No fines are charged for overdue materials, but customers are responsible for lost items. This is a personalized service where you can choose the specific items you want to receive each month, or let our librarians choose for you based on your preferences. Each shipment you receive includes pre-paid return postage and a return label. Simply put your library materials back into the bag and mail it back to us.
I have a temporary medical issue – can I sign up?
Yes! Library by Mail services can be permanent or temporary, based on your current situation and needs.
