The NWLS Mail-A-Book program is a county-funded library service for people of all ages who are residents of Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Sawyer, Vilas, and Washburn Counties living in areas without a local public library, or who cannot use a public library because of disability or travel limitation. Eligibility for the Mail-A-Book service is outlined on the Mail-A-Book Card Application.

Items will be mailed to you free of charge. You have three options for returning items unless there is a warning label not to use a book drop: (1) U.S. mail (you pay postage) (2) Any NWLS rural book drop (3) Any NWLS member library.

To apply for Mail-A-Book service, print, complete, sign, and send the Mail-A-Book application to the address on the application. Email with any questions.
