If the child or teen already has a library card:  Once a parent signs up a child or a teen for the Mailbox Library, then they may request books to be sent to them in the mail.  After they read the books, the child or teen puts them back in the zippered bag they came in (example shown to the right), turns over the address label, and drops the bag in the mail.  They may fill out the request card that comes with the books for what they want to read next, and drop it in the mail separately, or they may contact the Mailbox Library staff by phone to request more items.

If the child or teen does not have a library card:  As part of the parent signing up their child or teen for the Mailbox Library, they will complete a library card application.  The library card will be mailed to the home address with a letter to the parent and two (2) age-appropriate books, so the child or teen may get started reading right away.  After they read the books, the child or teen puts them back in the zippered bag they came in, turns over the address label, and drops the bag in the mail.  They may fill out the request card that comes with the books for what they want to read next, drop it in the mail separately, or they may contact the Mailbox Library staff by phone to request more items.
