The Brooks Public Library, in cooperation with the Shortgrass Library System, is pleased to offer 'Paperbacks by Mail'.
PBM is a service that sends library books out by mail. This service is generally used by people who are unable to use a public library or who live far from a public library.
Three times a year, a print catalouge is mailed out to program participants. You can choose up to six books at a time from the catalogue. These books are then mailed to you in a returnable mail bag, complete with a postage paid return label. This means that you never have to pay postage for returning your books recieved through the PBM program.
Interested in joining, or know someone who would like to? There are 3 easy ways to sign up for PBM:1) If you already have a membership at a Shortgrass library
Call Larry Dye at 403-529-0550 and tell him that you want to join PBM.2) If you don't have a current library card from a Shortgrass library, but you want one
Go to your local public library (for example, the Brooks Public Library) and register for a library card. Once you have a current membership, call Larry Dye at 403-529-0550 to join the PBM program.3) I only want to join the PBM program and not get a library card
If you just want to join the PBM program, you must be a resident of one of the municipalities that supports the Shortgrass Library System (Bassano, Bow Island, Brooks, County of Forty Mile, County of Newell, Cypress County, Foremost, Medicine Hat, Rainier, Ralston, Redcliff, Rolling Hills, Rosemary, and Tilley)
If you live in one of the supporting municipalities, you may request an application form to join the program. Fill out the form and return it, along with a cheque payable to "Shortgrass Library System" for $10.00. Forms may be picked up from the Brooks Public Library, or may be mailed to you by calling Larry Dye at 403-529-0550.
