All Palm Beach County Library System locations will be closed on Mon, Jan 21 for Martin Luther King Day. No materials will be due on this day.
cloudLibrary is our new e-book/e-audiobook service. This service has replaced Axis360. E-audiobooks from Overdrive have been moved to cloudLibrary as well.


This free service provides books to Palm Beach County residents who cannot visit their library because of a physical disability, long-term illness, or lack of transportation. Materials can be requested by mail, telephone, or electronically. Readers may request reader's advisory assistance from Books-By-Mail staff, and titles from any source.

Call Books-By-Mail at 561-649-5482 (Greater West Palm Beach) or 1-888-780-5151 (toll-free) for more information.
