Announcing Library Mail Service For Residents of Inverness County

November 5th, 2018

Eastern Counties Regional Library (ECRL) is working with our partners to develop a plan for the future of library services in Inverness County. 

During this process we are offering residents of Inverness County previously served by the mobile service, and who are not able to use a Library branch, with library mail service through a pilot project based out of the Port Hood Library. Users can request materials online selecting their normal Community Site pick up location (Inverness, Judique, Whycocomagh, Cheticamp or St. Joseph du Moine) and the items will be mailed to the address listed on their account.  

For users that do not have access to the Internet or require assistance in placing requests please call one of our 3 Inverness County libraries.

·      Drs. Coady & Tompkins Memorial Library (Margaree Forks) 902.248.2821

·      Alexander Doyle Public Library (Mabou) 902.945.2257

·      Port Hood Library at 902.787.2568

Library staff at these locations can request materials be mailed to you on your behalf.

Library materials sent by mail will arrive in a black bag with a plastic window displaying the postage information (See Figure 1). Inside the package you will find a postage return slip (See Figure 2) along with your requested items. When you are ready to return your library items, please remove the original postage slip from the plastic window, replace it with the return slip, and bring the bag to your nearest Canada Post location or mailbox.

Please use this postage return slip as it has already been billed to ECRL (it will not save us any money if do not use it).Please note library mail bags will be added to your account (just like a book) and there will be an associated charge should they not be returned.
