YA Personal Book Bag
Looking for something new to read, but don’t have the time to browse young adult books in the teen room for a half an hour? Or maybe you’re just being cautious, and would prefer to use our drive-thru but aren’t sure how to find personalized reading recommendations.
We're now offering a YA Personal Book Bag that you can “order” here on our website and pick up at your convenience. Fill out the Google form below and tell us a little bit about your reading preferences, and our teen librarian will pull 5 different books from the teen room specifically curated for your tastes.
Once you get the notification that your Book Bag is ready, you can either come through the drive-thru and pick it up or grab it at the teen reference desk. We’ll also throw in some fun stuff every time, including bookmarks, keychains, buttons, book publisher swag, and anything else we can get our hands on.
Just a couple things to keep in mind…
This service is only available for 7th graders and up. Adults over 18 who wish to participate should be aware that books for this service are only pulled from the teen area. No books will be pulled from the adult or children’s section.
This is not a hold service. If there are particular books you have in mind, please use our library catalog to place a hold on them.
We will do our best to find the perfect books for every person, but that will not happen every time. Please be open-minded and patient as we try to find your new favorite read!
After you pick up your Book Bag, we’ll send out a follow-up form so that you can tell us whether you loved or hated your books, or thought they were just “Meh.” You can also use this follow-up form to go ahead and schedule your next YA Personal Book Bag if you want to continue using the service! We’ll store all of your preferences for you so that we can continue to improve our recommendations!
