Books By Mail

Books by Mail is a free service for library patrons with a disability that prevents them from being able to travel to a library.

Patrons with a temporary disability are welcome to apply for this service for as long as they qualify.

Patrons must have a Lake County library card in good standing to participate in Books by Mail.

For patrons who participate in the service, Books by Mail is considered the patron's home library. Therefore, patrons cannot use both a library and Books by Mail.

For additional information, please call Library Headquarters at 352-253-6180 or email at booksbymail@mylakelibrary.org.
