How does the Lending Library service work?

  • The Lending Library listing displays items in the collection.
  • Use the request form (see link at the top of the listing) to request up to three books.
  • Submitting the request form automatically e-mails your request to the Lending Library and sends you an email confirmation of your request.
  • The Lending Library will reply to your request with a PayPal money request for the applicable charge (See "How much does it cost to borrow," above).
  • Requests and payment by U.S. Mail are also possible, see "How can I borrow..." below.
  • When your payment is received the books are mailed to you.
  • Normally, shipment is via US Postal Service Media Mail. (Estimated shipping time = 7 days)
  • Priority Mail is available on request for an additional $5.00 service charge. As a general rule, packages ship on Friday only.
  • The mailed package includes a due date, pre-addressed return address envelope, and prepaid return postage.
