The Library-by-Mail service provides books and other library materials to SJPL members of all ages living in the City of San José. Library-by-Mail is for individuals who are unable to visit the library due to a temporary or permanent physical disability.

To enroll for Library-by-Mail at SJPL, please complete the following application in full. After submitting this application you will be emailed a certification form. Please share the certification form with your certifying authority, which can be a physician, nurse or social worker. Enrollment is complete once the certification form is received by SJPL staff.

Alternatively, a PDF print version of both the application and certification form can be completed and mailed to:

San Jose Public Library
Attn: Library-by-Mail, KPRR
150 East San Fernando Street
San Jose, CA 95112

When enrollment is completed, you will receive a welcome letter explaining how the Library-by-Mail service works, including how to contact a Library-by-Mail liaison if you have questions or to request materials.
