Wrapped Up At Your Library

A new kind of Free YA Book Subscription Box

Call to reserve a box and schedule a time to come in or use our Books2Go Curbside Service!

Each themed box contains a library book, matching swag and bookish items! Teens are encouraged (but not required) to attend the YA Café au Lit at the end of the month to talk about their book and share their thoughts! Each library location has a limited supply, so boxes are available on a first-come, first-served basis! One box per patron, per month. Boxes are free and reserved for middle and high school students only.

September Boxes are available at all sites on a first-come, first-served basis, so call and reserve yours today! Teens who reserve a box will have the option to "renew" early for the next month. Any teen who is placed on the waiting list is guaranteed a box for the following month.

Attending YA programs just got easier!

Introducing our new YA ALL Access Pass!

This pass is geared toward expediting the pre-registration process, and allowing for easy-access to YA resources and materials available now and in the future. Included in this form are the:
1. BCPLS Digital Participation Waiver
2. BCPLS In-Person Participation Waiver
3. BCPLS Discord Server Acceptable Use Policy
4. BCPLS YA STEM Resources Acceptable Use Policy and Waiver

This form does NOT include waivers for future off-site trips - waivers for trips and activities are individual to the program, and will be available upon registration.

Once you complete this form, you will receive a confirmation email with an invite to the YA Programs Discord server (where you can receive push updates about upcoming programs, direct access to the YA Coordinator, and different forums for information and safe chatting with other teens in the community). A physical pass can be picked up at any library location, and can be used to pre-register without having to sign all of the above forms over and over. Just let desk staff know you're a pass holder and what programs you want to join - ALL programs with limited supplies or in-person program REQUIRE you to let us know you're coming during COVID-19.

Psst! If you're on the YA Discord Server, many interactive programs like YALL, Jackbox Game Nights, Trivia Nights, Scavenger Hunts, and Squad Squabble become "open programs" to you - which means you don't have to pre-register AT ALL (no commitments, phone calls, or emails needed)! Cool right?

Complete this form to get your All Access Pass today!
