How does the Lending Library service work?

  • The Lending Library listing displays items in the collection.
  • Use the request form on this page to request up to three books. Payment is accepted at the time of the request.
  • Submitting the request form automatically e-mails your request to the Lending Library and sends you an email confirmation of your request.
  • Requests and payment by U.S. Mail are also possible, see "How can I borrow..." below.
  • When your payment is received the books will be mailed to you within a week.
  • Shipment is via US Postal Service Media Mail. Estimated shipping time = 7 days, so it could take up to 2 weeks for you to receive your books (or longer, for Alaska, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico).
  • The mailed package includes a due date, pre-addressed return address envelope, and prepaid return postage.
