- How Do I?
Books by Mail is a free service through which homebound residents of Prince George's County can borrow and return library books, audio books, magazines, and CD's through the mail.
Books, audio books, magazines, and CD's.
1. You can order materials through the library's online catalog.
2. You can call your local branch library and have the information desk staff look up and order your material.
3. You can call Outreach Services at 240-573-5070 to have staff look up and order your material.
When you order books by mail, branch staff pull the titles off of the shelves and send them to Outreach Services. Outreach Services staff checkout 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 days.
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. Customers must observe due dates. Renew or return materials on time (include shipping time) in order to avoid overdue fines.
If you have any questions or comments about service, please call Carian Gray of Outreach Services at 240-573-5070
