Hello, Families! Miss Julie here to tell you about a fun, new way to surprise your children. We know that getting children’s books through curbside pickup can be daunting. What do you get if you don’t already know what you are looking for? We hear you, parents, and we have come up with a solution that we think you will love: Mystery Book Grab Bags! Just fill out the Google Form with your preferences and library card number, and we will email you when your books are ready for pickup through curbside pickup. Think of it as one of those personal clothes shopping sites… but for books! If you don’t like what we send to you, feel free to let us know, and we will try to make better choices next time. The best part is, there is no limit to how many times you can request a grab bag and no limit to the number of kids you can request them for, so if you have seven kids, just fill the form out seven times and we will get to work! Each bag contains five books picked according to your specifications and your choice of a candy cane or stickers. The brown bag will be sealed and will have your child’s name on it. The only thing we will not do is promise specific books. If you already know that you want a specific book, please call the reference desk or put a hold on it through PrairieCat.

- Mondays, 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.
- Wednesdays, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
