Check it Out: Library offers ‘loot’ to teens

The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., has announced a new service for teens called “Library Loot.”

Registration is required for a free Library Loot box, which will be available beginning at 10 a.m. on the first of each month. The first box will be available Thursday, April 1.

Each box will contain a library book and other surprises.

This is not an ongoing subscription. Sign up each month to receive your box, and skip any month where you don’t want one.

Boxes can be picked up in the James V. Brown Library’s Welch Children’s Wing on the first floor and checked out with your library card. You will have one week to pick up your box.

The box and the book inside will be due back at the library three weeks after you check them out. The rest of the box’s contents are yours to keep!

When you’re done with your book and the box, please return both to the library. The book boxes cannot be returned through the book drop; please bring them inside and hand them to someone at a Help Desk.

If you have any questions, please call 570-326-0536, ext. 115 or email Megan at mflynn@jvbrown.edu.

— For your safety, all returned materials are quarantined for three days.

The James V. Brown Library is open for browsing and holds pick up from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; and 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday. To place a hold, visit www.jvbrown.edu or call 570-326-0536 during the library’s operating hours. The James V. Brown Library, 19 E.
