Are you homebound? You can still use the library!

Our Books-By-Mail program is for patrons who are not able to visit the library because of a temporary or permanent disability.

Fill out a Reader Profile form so we know what sorts of things you like. You can also request specific books or authors using our Books-By-Mail Request form. You can check out books, audiobooks, movies, and music.

There is no charge for the program. Items are sent out no more than once a week.

Fill out both forms below or click on the buttons to the right to download a PDF to print and mail to:

Reader Profile Form

In order to fill your requests, we need some information on what types of materials you desire. Please complete this form and add any comments that will help us serve you better. This Reader Profile will be kept at the Library and may be changed or updated at any time. We hope you enjoy receiving Books-by-Mail.

Do you have favorite authors? Please list them.
The Library must be called each time you request materials. This is important because different volunteers fill your request each week.
