The Robbins Library staff knows that many of you miss browsing our collections in person. One way we are helping to simulate the browsing experience is with our Grab Bag service. Now we have added another way: our new Book Packs.

 You can now request a tote bag with items in a specific topic or genre and take home an array of titles to peruse. Find Book Packs by searching “book pack” in the library catalog.

Click on each record to see the titles included in that Book Pack. We’ll be continuing to add to this new collection, current Book Packs are listed here: 

Race (2 bags)
Mountaineering
Romance
Queer Fiction
Latinx Fiction
Hot Fiction
Cooking
True Crime
Indigenous Fiction and Non-fiction
Queer History
Climate Change
Mindfulness
Epidemics

Librarian Linda  Dyndiuk said in an Oct. 22 news release: “we hope these bags will satisfy your curiosity when you want to learn more about a topic but don’t have particular titles in mind, or just want a selection of new, popular books. Getting five or so titles at once will give you some choice and hopefully keep you busy for the six-week checkout period.”
