Book Bundle Request

Book Bundle Request

Book bundles are a recommendation of 3-5 books put together by our youth librarians. You can request a topic/subject you are studying or your child is interested in, and a librarian will reach out with recommendations. We are happy to place the books on hold for you if you are interested.
