Teen LibCrate

Sign up to receive a free Teen LibCrate from the Main or Regional Libraries! You’ll receive a themed box containing a library book, a snack, a craft, and more! When you’re done with the book, return it with the box, and the rest is yours to keep! This winter’s theme is Verse Books. Ages 12-18; registration begins 2 weeks before the program date. 

Distribution begins Monday, December 12. Register for a Teen LibCrate.


What is Teen LibCrate? 

  • Teen LibCrate is a free, packaged box experience for teens.
  • It is a lot like other book subscription services you might have seen, but this one is coming from your public library.
  • A new Teen LibCrate will be released four times a year (March, June, September, and December).
  • Once you read the book, return it and the box. You get to keep the rest. Failure to return your LibCrate box will result in a prohibition against future LibCrate program registrations.
  • Registration is required and limited for this program, so be sure to act fast.

How does it work? 

  • To sign up, go to the event calendar on our website.
  • Registration is just like normal program registration, with a few extra questions.
  • You will have to provide a phone number, email address, your preferred branch, and tell us what grade you’re in.
  • You must have a Library card to check out a LibCrate and only one will be issued per card.
  • Once the boxes are ready, we will call you and let you know.
  • You will have one week to pick up your box before it goes to the next person on the waiting list.

What’s in the box? 

  • One teen book specially selected for that month’s theme
  • Several bits of swag you get to keep like candy, buttons, bookmarks, key chains, etc.
  • A themed craft
  • A bookmark with book recommendations based on the theme
  • A QR code linking to a curated Spotify playlist for the box
  • The library’s BookTalk Newsletter
  • And instructions
