Introducing the New Bundle o’ Books Service

After a successful pilot during the summer, the former Bag o’ Books service has been expanded, enhanced, and relaunched as Bundle o’ Books. This popular service offers quick checkout of a “bundle” of picture books, board books, or beginning reader books with just a few clicks of the button.

The Bundle o’ Books online service makes it easy and convenient for parents and caregivers to provide a fresh selection of diverse books to their young readers.

A new online reservation system

We’ve automated the requests for books! When you reserve a Bundle o’ Books using our new online reservation system (powered by KitKeeper), you can explore availability by library or by date and choose the type of bundle you’d like to reserve.

Our Bundle o’ Books webpage includes a link to the reservation system. From there you can browse availability, reserve your bundles, and review the “Help” guide.

You will need your Poudre Libraries card to reserve books and to check them out using Curbside Pickup (or in-person once buildings re-open to the public).

Curated selection of quality children’s books

Each Bundle is hand picked by a librarian to present a variety of content, themes, and styles, including cultural and geographic diversity. Book selections are sure to engage and delight young readers.

English and Spanish-language book bundles are available

You can choose whether you’d like your Bundle to be filled with English or Spanish-language picture books, board books, or beginning readers. Picture books and beginning reader books are available in bundles of 10; board books are available in bundles of five.
