Campbell Co. Public Library expands Book Care Package program to include resources for adults

Campbell County Public Library’s Book Care Package service is getting a refresh — adults can now request packages for all their research and entertainment needs.

The service allows patrons of all ages to request up to 10 books and audio materials handpicked by library staff to fit the patron’s tastes and preferences. Requests should be made a week in advance at any CCPL branch or online at www.cc-pl.org.

The library’s updated submission form includes questions about interests, genre preferences and more. Once ready, patrons will be notified that the package can be picked up at the branch of their choice. The forms are divided into five age groups: young ones, elementary school, middle school, high school and adults.

If patrons want to request packages for multiple ages, they should submit a form for each age range interested.

Ideas for Book Care Packages include:

• Family read-a-thon: Gather the family, fill out forms based on ages and prepare to read the day away. Set a goal for the number of pages or time spent reading and then celebrate once everyone crosses the finish line.

• Class project: Book Care Packages are the perfect way to prepare for an upcoming class assignment. No matter the subject matter, the library is sure to have materials in their collection to help you ace that presentation, exam, or creative project.

• Get out of a reading rut: For those who can’t seem to get out of a reading rut, let the library help you find your next favorite series or author.

• Prep for vacation: Make sure you’re well-stocked on books to read during your next vacation so you don’t arrive at the beach, cabin or big city empty-handed.

• Host an at-home story time: Have fun, make memories and encourage literacy skills by requesting a package for an at-home story time.
