Kids + Teens Book Bundles

Trying to match the right book to the right reader? Let us put together a custom Book Bundle for you to pick up at the library!

What are you looking for?

Tell us what you’re looking for, including the type of item (books, DVDs, audiobooks, etc.), age or grade, and topics of interest. Your request will be filled by reading experts from our Children’s Services staff.

Examples: “Four books about butterflies for a second grader” or “Three fantasy stories for someone who likes Harry Potter” or “Books even a reluctant reader might like.”

If you know exactly which title you want, place a hold through our catalog, rather than using this form.

Ready for pickup!

When your Book Bundle is ready for pickup, we’ll send you a message by phone or email. We offer two options for pickup:

1. You are welcome to stop by—you’ll find your items in our Holds area near the Checkout desk.  Check out  your items and start reading!

2. Or you can schedule a time for curbside pickup at the Main Library or Douglass Branch. You can select your time online via our calendar or call 217/403-2000 for assistance. Give us a call when you arrive and we will bring your materials to you for contactless pickup.
