Dare County Library Mystery Book Bag is not just for children! Not just mystery books!

Dare County Library

In September, we announced our “Mystery Book Bags” for Children, and they have been incredibly popular! But we want everyone to know two important things. 1) We’ll create a mystery book back for anyone – adult, teen or child, and, 2) Don’t let the name fool you – we call it a “Mystery Book Bag” but the titles can be any genre of fiction or any nonfiction subject you are interested in.

We know it can be intimidating for some folks to use our online catalog. We also know that your time is valuable – so to recap – here is how the “Mystery Book Bag” process works.

  1. Call your Dare County Library location weekdays between 9 am and 5 pm.
  2. If it’s for your child or children, please tell us a little about your child’s reading interests. If its for you, tell us a little about your own reading interests. We’ll also ask you about how many books you’d like for us to select.
  3. We will schedule a convenient curbside pick-up time for you.

That’s it!

After you are off the phone, our staff will then search our collection and select books we believe you or 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 to enjoy!

If you’ve already borrowed a “Mystery Book Bag” from us, great – remember to “Make it a Weekly Thing”, and get some new books into the household. If you are a parent or caregiver that haven’t tried this new service yet – what are you waiting for? Simply give us a call and we’ll do all of the rest.

Other options for selecting books – you can search our online catalog www.earlibrary.org and place holds from home, or call us if there is a particular subject, author, title or genre you’d like. More information here: https://www.darenc.com/departments/libraries/reading
