You can register for Books By Mail if you live in Colchester County or the Municipality of East Hants AND are 10 km or farther from one of our branch libraries. If you would like to take advantage of this service, complete the online form or contact any of our branches.
After you've registered, make your selections using our online catalogue (make sure to choose "Books By Mail" as your pick up library). You may also contact Books By Mail staff and we will choose books for you. Just tell us what you'd like.
Once the books are received by the Books By Mail department we will mail the books to you. Return the books using the free self-addressed, stamped mailing label included in the mailing pouch. Drop it off at any post office. Simple as that!
