Get it by Mail


Who can use the service? Any resident of Chelan, Douglas, Ferry, Grant, or Okanogan County with a valid NCRL library card.

NCRL’s Mail Order Library provides direct library service to residents of our 5-county service area. If you don’t already have a library card, you can get one at any branch library, by contacting the Mail Order Library at mailorder@ncrl.org, or by calling 1-800-426-READ (7323) or 509-663-1117.

What’s available? Books, audio and video recordings. If it’s available in the Regional Library collection, it can be delivered to you.

Each edition of NCRL’s Mail Order catalog lists titles added to the Mail Order collection over a 4-month period. The printed catalog is distributed automatically to all rural box holders, is posted to the NCRL web page and may be obtained at any branch Library location or by calling the Mail Order Library at 1-800-426-READ (7323) or 509-663-1117.

How do I order? Orders may be placed on-line or by mail, e-mail, or telephone.

  • Fill out an order card and drop it in the mail.
  • Order by phone 1-800-426-READ (7323) or 509-663-1117
  • Email to mol@ncrl.org.

Please include your name, address, and library card number and the catalog numbers or titles of the items you’d like to receive.

How long can I keep what I borrow? Most books are loaned for approximately one month, audio and video recordings for shorter periods. A receipt mailed with the item(s) will give the due date(s).

How do I return my order when I’m finished? You can mail items back or return them to any NCRL branch library.

Your order will be mailed in a zippered bag that can be used for return shipment. Simply turn over the address label and place the bag in the mail. No postage is necessary.

Returning your order to a nearby branch library helps reduce costs. Many branch libraries have outside returns you can use when the library is not open.
