As long as you use PBS printable postage you don't need to go to the PO you can drop it in a bluebox or send with your carrier (if your carrier takes packages, some don't). They only time the 13 oz rule takes effect is when you are using only regular stamps on a package. You could also use another source of postage like PayPal or an APC to get postage and not have to take the package to the counter at a post office.

Just make sure you have the right postage amount on the package.  You can adjust the weight when printed the postage to add the extra books and packaging.
