Books by Mail is a free service through which homebound residents of Prince George's County can borrow and return library books, audiobooks and magazines through the mail.
Books, audiobooks and magazines may be borrowed by mail.
You can reserve materials through the library's online catalog.
When you order books by mail, branch staff pull the titles off the shelves and send them to Outreach Services. Outreach Services staff check out the materials to your account, notify you to expect a delivery, and place the titles in a special mailing bag. Mailing bags can hold 1-3 items. The postage is determined and the mailing bags are taken to the post office for delivery. This process from ordering the material to receipt of the items should take no more than five (5) days.
You can call Outreach Services at 240-573-5070 if you have any questions.
The service is free; however participants in the Books by Mail program are subject to the same loan policy and fine rates as other customers. Please renew or return materials on time and allow for a few days of shipping time in order to avoid overdue fines.
If you have any questions or comments about this service, please call Outreach Services at 240-573-5070.
