Library By Mail

The Burlington County Library System has initiated a Library-by-Mail program for those homebound Burlington County residents who would like to receive library materials but who are unable to leave their home.

To qualify, you must have your physician or healthcare professional complete this form.  Once approved, you can begin to receive for $1 per mailed item within 5-7 days.

Check out their site for more information regarding the service and to search their catalog.
