Do you know about Books-By-Mail?

The Palm Beach County Library System has library services for Homebound Seniors – Books-By-Mail. For homebound seniors access to information can be limited which can lead to feelings of isolation and disconnection from the world. This often has effects on a person’s mental and/or emotional well-being. Books-By-Mail can bridge this gap by offering books, movies, audiobooks and vital programs to library members. Through outreach programs and partnerships with community organizations, Books-By-Mail ensures that homebound library members have access to a wide range of materials and information. This empowers seniors to stay informed, engaged and intellectually stimulated and offers a lifeline by facilitating social connections and community engagement for those unable to leave their homes. By addressing the needs of homebound seniors, libraries play a vital role in promoting dignity, self-sufficiency and a higher quality of life.

“I am unable to leave my home, but your books allow my mind to travel the world,”
