In a hurry? Grab a book bundle!

So you just found out that little Jimmy from down the road is staying the weekend and you have GOT to keep him busy. The only thing you know for sure is that he loves to read and wants to be either a ninja or a paleontologist when he grows up. Problem is, it’s 4:55 and the library closes in 5 minutes. What are you going to do???

Don’t start pulling out your hair! We’ve got you covered. Central Youth Services has a selection of thematic book bundles that can match any interest. We select 5 or 6 picture books and nonfiction titles under one subject and bundle them together for your convenience.
