Binge Bags (formerly Book Bundles)

Our popular Book Bundles program has expanded and is now called Binge Bags. Patrons can place a hold for a bag of materials on a certain topic using our Binge Bag Request Form. Patrons must be sure to fill out the age of the reader, type of media they'd like included and what category. Binge Bags will include three to five items for patrons to enjoy or "binge." To pick up a Binge Bag, patrons can follow the same steps outlined below for in-library, curbside or Little Red Reading Bus pickup.
