Teen LitBox Registration Begins
Monday, January 30, 2023
For grades 7 – 12. Teen LitBox is a curated box that includes 1-2 library books selected by a librarian for you to check out, read, and return. We'll feature books that explore social justice, which include topics such as injustice and inequity in society. We will also feature a treat from a women-owned, minority-owned business. This box contains food.
Limited to 20. Register for your box
starting January 30. Pick up your box Mon, Feb. 13 - Sun, Feb. 19.
How do I pick up my box?
Pick up your box at the Children's Desk. Remember to bring your library card! Check out your books at the Express Check Out machine (we can show you how). Books are returned normally. The rest of the items in the box are yours to keep.
Where can I register?
You can find out more and register on the LitBox Activities page.
Do I need a library card to participate?
Yes, you will need a library card in good standing. Since the books inside the box are library books, you'll need to check out the books at the express check out.
How do you pick the books?
Book selections correlate to the LitBox theme. We'll use library/educator journals, reading lists, and our knowledge of new and notable titles to make some awesome picks. When you register, you'll let us know what grade you are in which will help us select a book for you. You can also tell us about what you typically do and don't like to read. If you LOVE fantasy, but don't like realistic fiction, let us know when you register!
What if I don't like a month's theme?
If you don't like the theme one month, skip it. You can check back next month on the theme and decide whether to register.
This box does contain food that could have come in contact with tree nuts, soy, or other allergens.
