Grab and Go Bags

Grab and Go Bags are a quick and easy way to get a great selection of books without having to browse through our stacks or place lots of holds on individual items.

Each Grab and Go bag contains 5 to 20 items on a single topic. We package them for you, so you don’t have to spend time searching for what you want!

How does Grab and Go work?

You can get a Grab and Go Bag in a few different ways:

  • Request one using our online form, below. 
  • Ask for one while you’re using curbside holds pickup, or
  • Visit your local branch to grab one of our ready-made bags.

When you request a Grab and Go Bag, we’ll choose 5-20 items specifically for your interests, and contact you when they are ready to pick-up. Just tell us:

  • What format you’re looking for (e.g. picture books, magazines)
  • How many items you want, and
  • What kind of material you’re the mood for, and we will handle the rest.

No time to select items or fill in a form?

Just go to your local branch and either ask staff in person or call the curbside number to ask what Grab and Go Bags are available.

How many can I have at one time?

You can have as many bags as you like, but if you’re requesting bags for more than one topic or person using the online form, we recommend completing one form for each request, for better customization.

Where do I return the Grab and Go Bag?

You can return them to book drops at any RPL location. If the bag doesn’t fit, you can place the books in the slot separately. If that doesn’t work, please ask the staff and they will be happy to help you.

What's the difference between Books4Me and Grab and Go?

Books4Me is a customized book list that you can use to find great reads in any format, or from anywhere.

Grab and Go bags are full of items that we’ve put together for you based on a few of your preferences. If you’re unsure which is best for you, please call us at 306.777.6000 for more information.
