Handpicked For You

The library is like a garden at harvest time. The bounty can be overwhelming! Let us help you find the perfect bouquet of books (and more!) with our new Handpicked For You service.

Click/tap the green "Request" button on this page—in the lower right corner of your screen—to open the Handpicked For You form. Then choose one of our two options.

A Bundle of Items to Pick Up

We'll ask for some information about who the bundle is for, what topics you're interested in, and how many items you'd like. Then our helpful staff will do the "shopping" for you. We will send you an email when your bundle is ready to pick up at your preferred location. 

A Digital List of Suggestions

Looking for recommendations for your next great read/watch/listen? Tell us about your reading interests, favourite authors, and anything to avoid. Our librarians will thoughtfully curate a short list of titles they think you'll love. We will email you a digital list of links to these items in our catalogue, generally within two business days.

Happy Reading!

Our book-loving, knowledgeable staff are what sets us apart from big box and online retailers. We invite you to explore this service and let our staff help you discover items in our collection you may not have found on your own. 

Handpicked For You is brand new to BPL. As we grow this service, please feel free to share your feedback so we can improve. Happy reading!
