It's called Library Loot and yes, it really is 100% free. All you have to have to be able to participate is a working library card, because you do have to check out your box like you would a library book.
Inside each monthly box is a book chosen for you by the Main Library Teen staff, and a bunch of other cool stuff including snacks, candy and a variety of themed prizes like toys, key chains. stickers, bookmarks, and much more. Every box is different because the book inside is hand picked especially for the receiver based on their reading preferences.
Right now the box subscriptions are wait-list only, but if you want to receive one in the future, stop by the main library teen room, talk to Nikki, Alex or Elia and get your name on the waiting list! Check out an example of what the monthly boxes look like:
