Are You Homebound?
Sign Up for Books-By-Mail


Books-by-Mail is open to all district-wide patrons who are homebound due to physical disability or long term illness.


Users of this service may request both large print and audio books.


One you are registered for the Books-by-Mail service, materials are sent in a reusable envelope through the United States Postal Service. The packages are delivered to your home in a canvas envelope and must be returned in the same envelope by depositing them in a mail box or by having a letter carrier pick them up.

The address card on the front envelope must be reversed so that the Allentown Public Library’s address and the pre-paid return postage are showing.

For More Information and to Register, call the Reference Desk at (610) 820-2400 ext. 2.
