Jr Biblio File – August

Curated Collections for your Convenience



Tucked away in the teen and magazines area, behind our comfy reading couch is a book shelf full of hanging bags. Each of these bags contain carefully curated selections of books on various topics of interest to small humans and their keepers.

Some are fun and entertaining, some are educational, all are very helpful. Best of all, they are all are available to be checked out! These book bags are called Parent Packs and they are a generous collaboration with Grassroots. They may just be our library’s best kept secret, but secrets aren’t the point of libraries, so it’s time to spill the beans!

To save you browsing time, (although the library is now open to patrons again, and we would LOVE to see you), here is a list of our parent pack topics!
