Grab and Go Bags are a quick and easy way to get a great selection of books without having to browse through our stacks or place lots of holds on individual items.
Each Grab and Go bag contains 5 to 20 items on a single topic. We package them for you, so you don’t have to spend time searching for what you want!
You can get a Grab and Go Bag in a few different ways:
When you request a Grab and Go Bag, we’ll choose 5-20 items specifically for your interests, and contact you when they are ready to pick-up. Just tell us:
No time to select items or fill in a form?
Just go to your local branch and either ask staff in person or call the curbside number to ask what Grab and Go Bags are available.
You can have as many bags as you like, but if you’re requesting bags for more than one topic or person using the online form, we recommend completing one form for each request, for better customization.
You can return them to book drops at any RPL location. If the bag doesn’t fit, you can place the books in the slot separately. If that doesn’t work, please ask the staff and they will be happy to help you.
Books4Me is a customized book list that you can use to find great reads in any format or from anywhere.
Grab and Go bags are full of items that we’ve put together for you based on a few of your preferences. If you’re unsure which is best for you, please call us at 306.777.6000 for more information.
If requesting via the online form, please allow 5 to 7 business days for us to create your Grab and Go Bag. When it's ready, you'll receive notifications like you would for a hold.
Remember: the more information you give us, the more closely your bag can be tailored just for you.
