1. Apply for Story Door home delivery

Download the Story Door application: Word or PDF

To join, fill out the Story Door application and return it to the library. You can download the application here.  We can also mail Story Door or library card applications directly to you, or you or a friend/family member can pick up the applications at the library. In the application, you’ll have the chance to tell us about your book, music, and movie preferences, your favorite authors/genres, the formats you want, and any specific requests.

2. Receive Books & Materials by Mail

Once we receive your application, we will set up an account for you. You will receive two library items at a time through the mail.

Delivery and return is by U.S. mail, and the library pays the postage both ways! Large print books, audio-CDs, music, and non-fiction DVDs are particularly popular for those with visual impairments.

Materials are due in two months. Late fees are 15 cents per day per item. A due date receipt is enclosed in each package.

3. Return Your Materials

When you’re ready to return your materials, just place them back in the nylon bag and turn over the return address card. The postage is paid by the library. Place the bag in your residential postal box.

When we receive your materials, we will mail you two new items.
