International Mail

There are a number of options available for shipping items outside of the United States. Costs and service times vary widely based on the recipient country's postal system. For this reason it is difficult to estimate how long a letter or package will take to reach a certain destination. Typically, the Library sends international packages via the USPS. We have found that there are fewer issues or delays due to customs requirements.

Because the Mail Services staff must complete necessary export documents, please attach a note to the outgoing package with the following information:

  • Sender’s name and phone number
  • Recipient’s first and last name
  • Business name and phone number
  • Complete address in English
  • Description of contents including quantity and value of items (i.e. 4 books for gifts with no commercial value)
