Last summer, over 15 teens signed up to receive “subscription boxes” from the library, and we’re bringing it back again this summer! In June and July, teens who sign-up will receive three library books chosen especially for them and a variety of goodies that are theirs to keep! 

 

To participate, teens must be 13-17 years old, and they need to fill out the survey with book preferences and interests. If they sign-up by June 6, 2022, they will receive a Bag o’ Books in June and July. If they sign-up between June 6 and July 6, they will receive a Bag o’ Books in July. Pick-up will be June 15th and July 15th, and notifications will be made each month. 

 

Yes, all the titles in the Bag o’ Books count towards summer reading! This service is great for teens who don’t know what they like to read, are in a “reading slump,” haven’t found a good book after moving from juvenile fiction to YA, or who want to branch out and try something new but aren’t sure where to start. We are capping this awesome service at 20 participants this summer, so sign-up today!
