Books by Mail Now Available

If you are a resident of Jefferson Parish and are unable to leave home because of a temporary or permanent disability, the Jefferson Parish Library BOOKS BY MAIL service will send you books and other library materials free of charge.

The attached application must be filled out completely and signed by a physician, nurse, or social worker who can verify that you are disabled and unable to leave home.

To get started:
Send the following two forms to us through the mail or have someone drop it off for you.
  1. The BOOKS BY MAIL APPLICATION completed and signed by you; and
  2. The BOOKS BY MAIL READER PROFILE listing the types of materials you want to receive.

How does it work?  It’s just like checking out a book! 
  1. Once you have sent in your registration materials, you will receive your first BOOKS BY MAIL delivery in a mailing pouch. You will use the same pre‐paid pouch to return the books by giving them to your mail carrier.
  2. Reverse the address card attached to the front so that the Jefferson Parish Library address is showing. The card shows that the book return is pre‐paid so you pay no postage.
