The Palm Springs Public Library recognizes that in today’s busy world parents need all the help they can get. That’s why the Youth Room at the Library has created a new service that provides Grab ‘N Go bags of books. Busy parents can simply stop by the library and grab a bag of pre-selected books and check out the whole bag at once, it’s as easy as that!
Each bag contains ten picture books that are all related by a theme. You will find Grab n’ Go bags on: Going to School, Bugs, Dinosaurs, Pets, Farms, Fairy Tales, Toddlers, Families and one with Spanish titles. Other items are also included in the bag such as a CD, puppet or a book and CD or cassette set, plus a couple of activity sheets or craft ideas. There will be a list of all the materials in the bag that you need to return. The books will be checked out to the bag, so all you check out is the bag. Bags may not be renewed and materials not returned with the bag will be fined.
“We thought this was a great time saver for parents who are in a hurry or who might have young ones that are restless”, said Sharon Snow, the Youth Services Supervisor at the Library. For more information on this service or any other youth program call the Palm Springs Youth Department at 323-8199.
