REXommendations is a FREE packaged experience for readers twelve and younger. Your REXommendations bag is available monthly with a personalized book recommendation and special items for your child to KEEP! Our subscription service is similar to other paid services such as OwlCrate, Fab Fit Fun, and Loot Crate.

Pick up your bag!
Once you have been notified that your bag is available, simply call the library to schedule a curbside pick-up, or visit the library and pick-up your bag from the Circulation Desk on the first floor.

You won’t know what we’ve picked out for your young reader! When you get home, they will have the exciting experience of opening the bag to see. Along with the recommended library books, they will also receive 2-3 FREE goodies to keep.

Give us some feedback!
Once you’re done, please return the books and complete our feedback form so we can make sure your next bag 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 few personally selected books from our collection chosen according to your young reader’s tastes  (these are due in three weeks!)
  • 2-3 fun bits of swag you get to KEEP (ex. candy, buttons, bookmarks, fun socks, key chains, etc.)
  • a link to an online survey to help us make your second bag even better
  • and an activity (scavenger hunt, I spy, maze, etc) to inspire even more fun after the reading is done.
