Sign up to receive a specially curated book and goodies each month with our new teen subscription boxes! For Grades 6-12. 

Here's how it works:

  • When registration opens, sign up for Library Crate: A Teen Subscription Box on our library calendar. Registration is limited and will only be open while spots are available.  
  • After registration closes, everyone who signed up will receive a questionnaire about their reading preferences.
  • Each subscription series runs for three months. Registrants can pick up their boxes during the designated pickup weeks for the current subscription series. 
  • Return the box and book to the Reference Desk by the return deadline but keep all the fun swag inside. Every month, participants will get a new book and new swag for the duration of the three-month subscription.

Registration for our winter subscription series is now open.  View Library Crate: A Teen Subscription Box in our library calendar.
