Are you seeking a dose of love and self-care? Sign up for our newest program: Teen Book Boxes!

These monthly boxes mirror subscription services like OwlCrate or LootCrate, except our boxes are free!

Each month, your will receive a box filled with 1-2 library books selected based on your preferences along with other goodies like bookmarks, crafts, small self-care items, allergy-friendly snacks, and handwritten notes from Teen Services staff.

CURRENT BOX: February 2021
THEME: Palentines
REGISTRATION OPEN from 1/16/2021 - 02/15/2021.

You MUST register by 02/15/2021 to receive a February 2021 box. Your box will be available in February. 

If you register after 02/15/2021 or if you register more than once, your registration will carry over to March.

We are no longer accepting registration for the January 2021 box. If you registered for a January 2021 box, you will receive your box in January.

Your registration does not renew automatically. You MUST register each month you'd like to receive a box. 

This program is only available for teens residing in Barholomew County, Indiana, in grades 7-12.
