Book Bundles: 

Tell us what you like to read or want to learn about and Children’s Services will put together a custom book bundle just for you. We can even put together a book club selection for you (including discussion questions), or help you choose just the right book for your unique group of kiddos. When your recommended reads are ready, we'll email you to pick up your bundle curbside! Request a book bundle here.

Fall is a great time to explore: 

    • Bravery
    • Elections, voting and women's right to vote
    • Community
    • Writing, reading and math
    • Harvest and farms
    • Friendship
    • Own Voices: Book features a main character with a diverse or marginalized identity written by an author from that same diverse group. Started by Corinne Duyvis.
