Paynesville "Grab & Go Bags" Popular With Kids And Busy Parents
The Paynesville branch of Great River Regional Library (GRRL) added 'Grab & Go' bags to their collection after hearing of their popularity in other branches.
Each sturdy, zippered bag is packed with ten picture books, all of them matching a theme. The entire bag checks out for three weeks. Library staff select contents for bags with these themes: Sports, Bedtime Stories, Trains & Planes, Horses, Bears, Dinosaurs, Farms, Trucks, Tractors and Big Machines, Seasons, ABCs & 123s, Zoo Animals, Around the World, Mother Goose, Nursery Rhymes & Fairy Tales, Wheels, Cats, and Dogs. Parents save time searching the shelves for books that match their child's interests, and the bag proves useful both for toting the books and for keeping them together until it's time to return them to the library.
