Books by Mail Service
Charleston County Public Library is now offering a Books-by-Mail service. This free service provides books, audio books, music CDs, videos and DVDs to people in Charleston County who qualify as permanently or temporarily homebound.

Those who qualify for the South Carolina State Library's Talking Book Services for People with Disabilities will be referred to the State Library. Information about the Talking Book Services may be obtained at the Charleston County Public Library.
How does this service work?
Materials will be sent through the mail in a zippered, nylon bag with a two-sided pre-posted mail tag. When the materials are due for return, the patron switches the mail tag to show the Charleston County Public Library address and mails the bag back to the library.
