Summer is almost here! We understand that getting to the library and checking out materials can be hard if you don’t live near our Columbia, Fulton, Ashland or Holts Summit library branches.
For 14 summers, the Daniel Boone Regional Library has provided a service for rural students where we mail books to kids and teens all for free! This program is called Books by Snail.
Getting started with Books by Snail is easy. First, sign up for the program. Just tell us what books your kids would like to begin with (or we can choose some for them). The more information, the better! With return postage already paid, we mail the books to your home. When your kids are done reading, send us the books back along with your request for more.
Students entering kindergarten through 12th grade who attend school in one of the school districts below are eligible to participate.
- New Bloomfield
- North Callaway
- South Callaway
The program runs from May 24 – August 14. Sign-up has already begun at booksbysnail.org. If you have any questions or would like more information, call us on our direct line at 573-817-7092 or email us. You may also call the Columbia Public library at 1-800-324-4806.
We hope to mail books to you soon!
