Library Takeout- Sample Something New!

Looking for something new to read, watch, or listen to? Have no fear- your friendly and knowledgeable Peabody librarians are here and hungry to help you! Library Takeout Bags feature items chosen by our staff based on general genres, topics, and age groups, or you can request a specific subject/age level at the bottom of the form (i.e. turtles for a 3 year old). You can also choose “surprise me” for a bag filled with 5 new items from any genre/topic.

Fill out the form below, and we’ll email or call you when your order is ready for pickup at the Main Library. Your takeout bag should be ready within 5-7 days of requesting it, with occasional delays for holidays or weather. Unfortunately, we are not able to accommodate same-day requests for takeout bags.

Each order includes 5 items, and patrons are limited to three orders at a time.
