BOOK BUNDLES FOR KIDSFamilies can register to receive regular book bundles curated by a librarian for each child! Let us know whether you'd like monthly bundles or a one-time bundle, and whether or not you'd like us to include DVDs and/or audiobooks. List a few interests for each child, and the children's librarian will select items tailored to your child's age and interests. Each bundle will include 5-10 books per child (more picture books/early readers/board books, fewer juvenile/YA books) and 2 DVDs and/or 2 audiobooks per family.
