Click the "I can mail later" button and choose the latest date that's available. (Don't worry, you can cancel on the next page)

On the next page under the "Books to Mail" tab, find the text " Send the requesting member a PM." Click the little PM button.

Be sure to check it against these posting guidelines:


  • Must be intact, with no separation on the inside or outside of the book
  • If the book tends to open at a particular page, this is OKAY
  • Small amount of fraying or denting at top or bottom is OKAY
