Pick up your bag!
Once you have been notified that your subscription is active, your package will be available on the 1st Monday of the month. Please call the library to schedule a curbside pick-up, or visit the library and pick-up your box from the Circulation Desk on the first floor.

You won’t know what we’ve picked out for you! When you get home, you’ll get the exciting experience of opening the box to see. Along with the book, you’ll also receive 2-3 FREE goodies to keep.

Give us some feedback!
Once you’re done, please complete our feedback form so we can make sure your next book is EVEN BETTER!

At the end of your 2 months, if you enjoyed the service, you can sign-up again!

What’s in the bag?

Every bag will include :

  • A personally selected book, or two, from our collection chosen according to your reading tastes
  • 2-3 fun bits of swag you get to keep (ex. candy, buttons, bookmarks, fun socks, key chains, etc.)
  • An evaluation card to let us know how we’re doing on selecting titles just for YOU
  • And an activity (scavenger hunt, I spy, maze, etc) to inspire even more fun after the reading is done
