Have you heard about subscription services like Bookroo, Owl Post Books or Little Box of Books? For a monthly fee, these services send you a package containing books and a few treats to go along with it.
Winter Park Library has rolled out a similar service just for children! Best of all, our service is completely FREE!
Children ages 3 - 9 can sign up each month to get one of these Story Sacks. Each bag will contain surprise books or book and movie (selected especially for you based on your input) and a selection of activities and surprises.
Here’s how it works:
Step 1:If you would like to get one of these boxes, you must have a current Winter Park Library card in good standing. Fill out a short form HERE (available August 1) telling us the kinds of things you like to read (or like in general). This is not an ongoing subscription! Sign up at the beginning of each month to receive your box and skip any month where you don’t want one.
Step 2: We pick out books (or book and movie, if you select family movie) that we think you’ll love and put it in one of our Story Sacks with other activities and surprises.
Step 3: You will receive an email when your story sack is checked out and ready to be picked up. These can be picked up curbside. You will have one week to pick up your story sack.
Step 4: When you’re done with your books, please return them to the library. The books or book and movie will be due back at the library three weeks after you check them out. The rest of the contents are yours to keep!
Subscription story sacks are available while supplies last.
