Children's Books To Go

The Helen Crocker Russell Library is open for limited front gate service starting October 1. During our phased re-opening, Garden members with a library card can check out children’s and teacher resources books “To Go.” Book pick up and drop off is available by appointment only and limited to Monday, Wednesday, or Friday. The interior library remains closed until further notice.


Children’s Books To Go is a service that safely delivers requested children’s books and teacher resources to members. This is a contact-free service where members can pick up their requested books at the library entrance gate. This service is available to Garden members only. Join today!
