Babylon Public Library

Homebound services

Welcome to the Babylon Public Library’s Books by Mail Homebound Services Program. This service provides a convenient way for homebound Babylon Public Library cardholders of all ages to obtain and return library materials by mail.

As part of our Books by Mail Homebound Services, books are mailed to your home or Facility in a teal colored book bag and may be kept for 21 days. When you send them back, turn the address card over to display the Babylon Public Library address and place it back in the plastic holder. You may leave the bag in your mailbox for your mailman to pick up. You pay no postage or overdue fines, but you are expected to return books in a timely manner. As with all library patrons, materials that are not returned or are returned in damaged condition are your responsibility.

Please print, fill out the Homebound application and accompanying Reader Interest Survey and return to :

Babylon Public Library
24 South Carll Avenue
Babylon, NY 11702

Once these materials are received, we can begin the service.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Babylon Public Library Adult Reference Department at 669-1624, or email
