Library Loot Book Box Subscription
Sign up before the 25th of each month for the next month’s box
Have you heard about subscription services like OwlCrate or Litjoy?
For a monthly fee, these services send you a package containing one book and a few treats to go along with it. We are offering a similar service just for teens ages 12 – 17! Best of all, our service is completely FREE!
Here’s how it works:
If you would like to get one of these boxes, you must sign up online before the 25th of the month. Boxes will be available around the 1st of the next month. Each box will contain one surprise book (selected especially for you based on your input) and a few fun surprises.
We will notify you when your box is ready. Boxes can be picked up at the Madison Library District’s Circulation Desk and checked out with your library card. You will have until the 15th of that month to pick up your book box. If you do not pick your box up, you will forfeit your place in the subscription list and must reapply.
When you’re done with your book, please return it to the Library. It will be due back at the Library three weeks after you check it out. The rest of the box’s contents are yours to keep!
Registration is limited to 12 participants each month, but a waiting list will be kept for those interested in joining the program when room allows. Your registration will be valid for 3 months and then must be resubmitted in order to give those on the waiting list an opportunity to use the service.
If you have some time tell us what you thought about your book and the items in your box!
March 1-31 (Every month has a new bingo challenge.)
Madison Library’s Brand New Reading Challenge
All ages can play. We have a bingo card for kids 11 and under, and one for teens and adults 12 and older. Read fun new books and audiobooks and win great prizes!
Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Read the challenges and pick a bingo line that most appeals to you.
Step 2: Read a book that completes a challenge. Read another. And another.
Step 3: When you are able to cross off 5 squares in a row on the board, bring your sheet in to the Circulation Desk for a prize and an entry in our monthly drawing. We will have a separate drawing for each age group.
Step 4: Keep reading! You can get as many prizes and entries as there are bingos on the board.
