Read at Your Own Pace

Are you a student entering grades K-12? Throughout the summer, tell the Daniel Boone Regional Library what books you’d like to borrow, and we’ll mail them to you, all for free.

Take as much time as you need. If your books are reaching their due date, let us know you’d like to renew them and we’ll take care of it for you.

If you finish your books or just want something new, we’ll send you more! Just mail your books back to the library using the postage-paid bag we send you, and you can keep ordering books until the end of the program.

Book mailings will continue through August 13.
