Check It Out bags are a quick and easy way to get a great selection of books, magazines and movies without having to browse through our stacks or place lots of holds on individual items.
Each Check It Out 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!
You can get a Check It Out bag in a few different ways:
When you request a Check It Out bag, we’ll choose 5-20 items specifically for your interests, and contact you when they are ready to pick-up. Just tell us:
No time to select items or fill in a form?
Just go to your local branch and call the curbside number to ask what Check It Out bags are available.
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.
You can return them to materials returns 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.
If you have any other questions about Check It Out bags, give our hotline a call at 306.777.6000!
If requesting via the online form, please allow 5 to 7 business days for us to create your Check It Out bag. When it's ready, you'll receive notifications like you would for a hold.
Remember: the more information you give us, the more closely your bag can be tailored just for you.
