Missing the ability to browse the shelves for your next book to read?
Let GRPL staff choose adult, children, or teen books and movies for you to browse at home!
During GRPL’s closure in response to COVID-19 we’re offering Book Bundles For adults, kids and teens. GRPL staff will select an assortment of books or movies in the type and amount you choose. You can choose to pick them up at the library or have them mailed to your home for free.
If you don’t want to leave the comfort of home, GRPL staff will select an assortment of books or movies based on your interests and mail 3-5 items to your home for you to enjoy. When you are done, return them to any GRPL location or by USPS. Return postage is the patron’s responsibility.
You will be notified when the items are ready for pickup or when your book bundle has been mailed.
