The Pike County Public Library (PCPL) is launching its Library By Mail service with a pilot program for residents of Greentown, Paupack and Tafton.
To be eligible for this service, you must live in one of those three areas and must have a valid PCPL library card (one with a 14-digit barcode). You must also be a patron in good standing with no overdue books or outstanding fines on your card, or a new patron. In addition, you must provide PCPL with current contact information, including a valid e-mail address.
If you do not currently have a valid PCPL card, you may sign up for one and register for our Library By Mail program by filling out the form provided on this page and mailing it to the address indicated on the form.
