The Pioneer Library System offers young readers a variety of ways to interact with the library from home this summer, including its seasonal Mailbox Library service.

The service may be used by anyone age 18 and under, with the primary intention for children and/or teens who are unable to physically make it to the library to pick up materials during the summer. The service will be available through August 17.

To start the process, sign up by calling 405-801-4593, emailing homeserv@pioneerlibrarysystem.org, or through a form online on the PLS web site, www.pioneerlibrarysystem.org.

Participants can request up to three books at a time to be sent in the mail. Books are loaned for 30 days and may be renewed for up to 30 more days if not on hold for another reader.

After they read the books, the child or teen puts books back in the zippered bag they came in, turns over the address label, and puts the bag in the mail. They then can request up to three more books to be mailed.

There is no charge for customers to use the Mailbox Library service, as the library pays postage both ways. All that is required is a PLS library card in good standing.
