March 2020 news & events Introducing PACKED, a Brand-New Book Subscription Service Readers — if you love personalization, convenience, and the element of surprise, have we got news for you! Auglaize County Libraries is introducing PACKED, a new free library subscription service, in all six of our library locations. PACKED will expand your shelf and cut down on time spent hunting for your next great read. If you ever heard of or tried StitchFix, Blue Apron, BirchBox, or any of the other vastly popular subscription services on the market today, the concept may sound familiar. Simply, fill out a fun survey to tell us a bit about your reading preferences — what are you in the mood to read, what do you avoid, etc. A human librarian then selects 3 books based on your answers. Your selections are then placed in a custom PACKED bag with your name on it, ready to be picked up at your convenience. And since half the fun is unwrapping, we’ll keep your selections a secret until you pick it up! PACKED bags can be scheduled on a monthly, quarterly, or a one-time basis. Registration is easy. Simply visit the Auglaize County Libraries website at www.auglaizelibraries.org and click on PACKED to start your survey. Brought to you by the staff at Auglaize County Libraries. Treat your shelf to a free PACKED Book Subscription today!
