The MonoBookBox offers young readers a chance to pick up a FREE monthly box full of surprises! Inside you’ll finds 1-2 library books, goodies according to the monthly theme and a tasty treat.

The MonoBookBox program is taking a break for summer 2020. But it will be back!

Movig forward, the MonoBookBox will be offered for two seasons -- the fall and spring.  Stay tuned for the fall sign up form. 



How does it work?

1. Complete your local MonoBookBox Form by the 20th of the month. Let us know a bit about you – your home library, your reading level & what you think makes a good story. You’ll also select which months you’d like to pick up a MonoBookBox (don’t worry, you can go back and edit your response if you’d like to add additional months or opt out!). This will help the Mono County librarians select a book that should be a good fit for you.

2. Pick up your MonoBookBox between the 1st and 5th of the following month (we’ll send you a reminder email). For example, Sign-up by October 20th and pick up your box between November 1-5th (if you sign up after October 20th but before November 20th, your first box will be ready December 1st). The MonoBookBox & the books will be signed-out to you, so be sure to return them. You may keep the other items in the box – that is, the goodies & the tasty treats. While you may renew the books if need more time to finish reading them, it is important that you return the box within 2 weeks so that we have them back in time to get them ready for the next month!

3. Once you’re signed up, we’ll continue to make a MonoBookBox for you for all of the months that you have marked on your MonoBookBox Form. If you need to make adjustments to the months that you'd like to participate, just let your local librarian know.

If you sign up for a MonoBookBox and don’t pick it up, we’ll give you a call or send an email to remind you. However, if we do not hear from you by the 10th, we’ll assume that you no longer wish to receive the box and remove you from our list.  At this point, we may offer your spot to another participant, so be sure to remember to grab your box if you'd like to stay in the program!
