Book Bundles Are Designed to Supplement, Not Replace, Holds
If your child is interested in a specific topic or book, please place a hold on those books, or contact the librarians by phone, text or chat to get help doing so.
This is fantastic. Exactly the sort of thing we were looking for. Will definitely take advantage!
David Summers says
The book bundle concept is great. Do I understand correctly that I can go to the library to pick up a bundle without first making a reservation?
Web Editor says
David, that is correct. All you have to do is ask for a Book Bundle at the Holds Pickup window.
Thank you, thank you, thank you! We used to browse and check out dozens of picture books at a time, and we’ve really missed being able to indulge in a good pile of curated picture books. This is just what we needed!
