Introducing Teen Book Boxes
Teen Book Boxes is a new monthly subscription service offered by the Henry County Public Library Youth Services Department. Library users in grades 6-12 can sign up for this service to have the opportunity to pick up a box at the end of each month. Each box will contain a library book chosen with personal reading preferences in mind, 2-3 goodies to keep, and a special activity.
To qualify for the next month’s box users are asked to preregister using that month’s form and must return their library book to the library before picking up the next box. If the book is not returned the box will go to the next person on the wait list.
September Teen Book Boxes will be ready for pick up Wednesday, September 23 through Saturday, September 26. You will receive a phone call that week reminding you to pick up your book box. You must have a library card to pick up your box. If you do not have one you can apply during pick up.
