How Does it Work?

Choose up to 8 titles from our online Library Catalogue and return the request card to us. Your books will be shipped to you as soon as possible. We will mail your request with everything you need to return the books. Please be sure to use the mailing label enclosed with each specific shipment of books to return them. No stamps are needed. A new request card is sent with each order.

The date the books are to be returned is stamped in the back of the book. Books are due back 6 weeks from the date we mail them to you. No new books can be sent until all books are returned from your first order.

What if a Book I Want isn't in the Catalogue?

Write to us at the Books by Mail address. We will do our best to locate a copy of the book at one of our libraries and have it loaned directly to you.

What if I Need Materials for a School Project?

Talk to your school library staff or teacher about requesting materials on your topic from our Regional Resource Library in Corner Brook.
