Books In Boxes

Each Books in Boxes set consists of 35 copies of one title packed in a box and is checked out as a unit. These sets are perfect for teachers, who would like multiple copies of the same book so that each student may have his/her own book to read independently.

Here are the lists of the current titles that we have in book sets:

Available Titles

Reservation Procedures

  • A Books in Boxes set can be checked out for 1 week - 6 week loan periods by making arrangements with the Children’s Library in person or by telephone at 330-643-9050. Booking is done only by the Children's Library, so that we can schedule sets in advance.
  • The sets are in high demand so please plan ahead. Check your school vacation dates, and please be flexible in your choice of titles, dates, and length of loan period.
  • The sets can be picked up and returned at Main Library or any of the 17 branches.
  • There will be a limit of 8 titles processed per request, unless mailed or emailed. (Call for the email address.) Teachers can check out up to 4 sets at a time.
  • We are sorry that we are unable to book sets on Sunday or during the last 1/2 hour before closing, as it is a time consuming procedure.
  • If it looks like you will need to keep a set past it’s due date, please contact the Children’s Library to extend the due date and to make sure there isn’t another teacher waiting for the set.
