Mail-A-Book is an Arrowhead Library System service with a designated collection of books and audio-visual materials that can be ordered by and mailed to qualified patrons at no cost to them.

This tax-supported service is provided to rural residents, those who live in a city without a public library, and homebound residents throughout the Arrowhead Library System’s region. The service area includes Carlton, Cook, Itasca, Koochiching, Lake, Lake of the Woods, & St. Louis Counties of Minnesota. Eligible patrons receive and return library materials by mail with all postage paid. Each calendar year two catalogs listing the newest materials are mailed to our patrons. Our recent catalogs are available by request and online. (See links below for PDF versions.)
