I don not want to delete my account as I am very happy, but I was asked by another member if they would be able to delete and account as they weren't happy with the process.  I have sent an email to the librarian, but not heard back, so thought I would ask here.

How do I cancel or suspend my membership?

A simple message to us with the request to close the account is all that is needed.

  • There is no minimum number of swaps necessary before an account can be closed.
  • You can easily suspend your account temporarily by putting your bookshelf on hold.
    • This will not put club emails on hold
    • This will not affect ongoing (already active) transactions 
    • This will not affect Box-O-Books; Box-O-Books needs to be paused separately.

The reason a member cannot close his or her account automatically is because we have to check for outstanding requests. It would be unfair to other members to leave items incomplete. Once a member requests cancellation, we close the account and handle outstanding items.

If you close your account and wish to have it reopened later, just send us another message.
