Sign Up for Books by Snail

Erin working on Books By SnailGetting to the library and checking out materials can be hard if you don’t live near our library branches. To help get books into the hands of kids and teens in our rural service areas, DBRL provides a free service every summer where we mail books straight to their homes. This program is called Books by Snail, and we’ve been providing this service for 13 years!

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.
