Free Book Pulling & Delivery

  •  

One more way we're bringing the library to you!

As a thank you to our members, Jenkins is offering our Book Pulling and Courier Delivery service free of charge. Starting Tuesday, September 5th, for a limited time, our staff will pull book(s) off the shelf and deliver them to you via courier.

Some restrictions do apply, but if your order is 9 lbs or less and you are within the Free Delivery Area Map borders, your order (book pulling & courier) is free. If an order is over the weight limit, the book pulling will still be free, but you will need to let us know how you want your items delivered. You can pick up the books at our front desk or have them sent via special courier, FedEX, UPS or USPS (charges apply). The choice is yours!

We've created a new Request a Free Book Pulling & Delivery form on our website to make it easy for you to place orders. For any questions, read our FAQ or contact our librarians at 215.574.1505 or via email or chat.
