Library's Mail Service
The Library offers mail service to deliver requested materials to customers. The cost to the customer is $1.99 per item with delivery within a week.
How do I place a request to have my item mailed?
When you place a request in the classic catalog, you will be prompted to select a pickup library. Use the drop down menu to select a pickup location like Curbside, a Smartlocker, or one of our TSCPL @ Work locations.
If you would like the item mailed to you, simply place a check in the box next to “please mail this to me.”
Your library account will be charged $1.99 when you place the hold and choose mailing as your delivery option.
How do I pay for mailing fees?
For frequent users of the Library’s Mail Service, the library recommends that customers maintain a balance on their SAM account to use to pay mailing fees. Library accounts are blocked by any fees over $10.

Will the library mail my item if my account is blocked?
No. Items will not be checked out and mailed until account balance owed is below $10. Library staff will contact customers to explain the situation.
What if I have a physical limitation that prevents access to library services?
You can register for a library card online and one will be mailed to you. That library card allows access to the library’s digital collections and learning tools. If you are interested in checking out the library’s physical materials, the library’s Red Carpet Services offers home delivery service. Call (785) 580-4400 to see if you qualify.
