New or Increased Delivery Stops Request Form

MLS members interested in joining the delivery schedule or increasing their delivery days should complete the form below. Before doing so please read through these policies.

Delivery Eligibility and Scheduling

Libraries that are full members of a network are eligible for at least two delivery days per week. Network libraries new to delivery will initially be added at two delivery days. Non-network libraries committed to resource sharing will initially receive one delivery day per week.

Additional delivery days for both networked and non-networked libraries will be assessed at the library’s request and will be determined based on average delivery volume per days of delivery from the most recent delivery survey results. For additional information on qualifying volume levels and eligibility considerations, please refer to the section in our delivery policies on eligibility and scheduling.

If requesting a timing change, we do not accept requests for timing changes via this form. Timing adjustments are only made under extraordinary circumstances and are at the discretion of MLS. Should you believe your timing request qualifies as an extraordinary circumstance, please contact MLS directly at delivery@masslibsystem.org. For additional information on our policy for timing changes, please refer to the section in our delivery policies on eligibility and scheduling.

If you would like to be added to the Mass. Library System’s delivery schedule or would like to request additional delivery days please complete this form. After submitting the form, you will receive an email with the details of your request. Please keep this for your records.

Additions and changes to the schedule will be made at the discretion of MLS.
