Let the Library Staff know what your child likes to read and we’ll pull together a “mystery” bag full of great books for them!

Announcing “Mystery Book Bags” from the Dare County Library. Here’s how it works. Call us weekdays between 9 am and 5 pm. Tell us a little about your child’s reading interests. Before you get off the phone, we will schedule a convenient curbside pick-up time for you. Staff will then search our collection and select books we believe your child will enjoy based on the information you’ve given to us. When you arrive for curbside pick up, the library books will already be checked out to you and ready for your to take home for child to enjoy.

Other options for selecting books – you can search our online catalog and place holds from home, or call us if there is a particular subject, author, title or genre you’d like. More information here:

We also offer eBooks for children on 3 different platforms all available for free with your Dare County Library card:

  • Cloud Library: Preschool, Children’s, Teen and Adult
  • NC KIDS Digital Library: Preschool through Grade 4
  • Tumble book Library Preschool through Grade 6
