If you are unsure if your home address falls within ISD boundaries, you may search your address in the ISD boundary map found here. If multiple children live within the same eligible household, a separate registration is required for each child.

Eight to ten weeks after your registration is received, books will begin arriving at your home and will continue until your child turns five or you move out of ISD boundaries. If your child’s address changes within ISD boundaries, you must email with your updated address in order to continue receiving books.
