Books by Mail
Baltimore City residents can request for Pratt Library materials to be sent to them via mail.
We are pleased to offer Books By Mail, a service normally only offered to homebound customers. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the Pratt Library is expanding the service to include any Baltimore City customer.
To request library materials by mail, call (410) 396-5430.
Books, audiobooks, Playaways, DVDs, and CDs are eligible to be borrowed through Books By Mail. We will ship the materials to you for free.
Book by Mail customers will receive a shipping label with their order but will be responsible for return postage costs. Books By Mail materials can also be returned to contact-free book drops outside Pratt Library locations.
We are pleased to offer Sidewalk Service, a contact-free way to check out and pick-up books and other materials from the Pratt Library.
