Books by Mail

Books-by-Mail is a convenient service that supplies books, audiobooks, and videos to people who cannot travel to a library. 

Who can get Books-by-Mail?

Children and adults in the county who cannot visit a library due to temporary or long-term physical or medical disability may qualify for Books-By-Mail. A current library card from one of the member libraries is needed. If you don't have a card, please call your local library for assistance.

How does it work?

Materials are sent through the mail in a zippered, nylon bag. When the materials are due for return, the patron attaches postage and mails the bag back. The bag may be dropped off at any Okaloosa County Library to save on return postage. Certain disabilities qualify for federal postage-free return service; ask us how to apply.
