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 few tasty treats.

Update:  We are no longer accepting new sign-ups at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience.  This program has become popular rather quickly, and until we can make sure we have the funds, time and capacity to make addtional boxes, we have to place a hold on new sign-ups.  


How does it work?

1. Complete the MonoBookBox Form by the 15th 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 March 15th and pick up your box between April 1-5th. 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. Again, you may return to this form and edit your response at any time – whether you’d like to edit your interests or the months you’d like to participate.

If you sign up for a MonoBookBox and don’t pick it up, we’ll give you a call 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.
