Library by Mail

Announcement: Our library by mail labels have changed due to new requirements from the postal service. You will benefit from speedier shipments and returns. All return labels must now be customized for you using a unique barcode for each package, therefore, the return label formerly available on this page is no longer in use. If you are an Avalon property owner in need of a pre-paid return mailing label please fill out the request form and a label will be emailed to you within 24 hours.

Avalon Free Public Library is as far away as your mailbox and as close as your computer. Let the library serve you wherever you live by participating in the Library by Mail service which features a reusable mailer and free postage. Receive by mail:

  • Books
  • Music CDs
  • Audio Books
  • PlayAway MP3 players
  • DVD's

Call the library (609-967-7155) or send us an email letting us know what you would like. Please verify your mailing address. Your request will be sent out within 2 days. Make sure to follow the mailing directions included in each mailer when returning your items. Mail on or before the due date to avoid late fees.


  • Service available to Avalon property owners
  • Will not ship oversized library material
  • New DVDs and video games are not included in this program
  • Patron must be in good standing
  • Patron may only have 2 bags checked out at one time

If you are planning to be away, there is no reason not to check out library material. Ask for a "mailer" at the circulation desk. Take the library with you!

Just need a mailing label? Request a label to be sent by email.
