Book Subscription Boxes at the Library

Book subscription boxes

Attention readers!

Have you heard of subscription boxes?  Well, we have a Library book box just for you!

Readers of all ages can sign up for a handpicked book each month (along with some extra goodies for you to keep!). 

How does it work?

  • Fill out a registration form below with some basic information and your reading preferences.
  • For the next three months, we’ll select a book we think you’ll love to check out!
  • We will contact you when your book box is ready to be picked up (you will have one week to pick up your box from the Youth Services or Adult Services desks.)
  • Book box selections will be checked out to you for four weeks.  When you’re done, return the book – the treats are yours to keep!

Best of all? It’s totally free!

Book boxes are available on a quarterly basis and availability is limited. Once you have signed up, you will receive monthly boxes for the next three months. If you want to continue your subscription, you will need to re-register during the next enrollment period while spots are still available.  Click one of the age groups below to register.

NOTE: if your child does not fit into one of these age groups, you can still get handpicked books from the Library by requesting a Grab Bag.  We also have our Personalized Picks form for adults looking for a list of reading suggestions without signing up for a subscription box.

Book Box Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t pick up my box?

You may miss picking up one box. If you fail to pick up a second monthly box, your subscription will be canceled and you will have to sign up when spots are once again available.

I know that I’ll be on vacation, can I put my subscription on hold?

Absolutely! If you do not want to receive a box during a particular month, email us at plainfieldkids@papl.info for kids and teens or info@papl.info for adults by the end of the preceding month.

I want to stop receiving boxes. What do I do?

Send an email to plainfieldkids@papl.info for kids and teen book boxes, and info@papl.info for adult book boxes.  We will remove you from the list.

Canceling my subscription was the biggest mistake I’ve made in my whole life! What can I do?

You can sign up again using the registration form. However, there are a limited number of boxes available for each session. You will need to register for a new subscription once the registration period reopens.
