In accordance with Oregon's statewide Two-Week Freeze, the library will temporarily suspend browsing hours starting Wednesday, November 18th. In-lobby Pickup of holds and 60-Minute Computer Appointments will continue as usual. Thank you for your understanding.

BookBox is a fun and easy way to try new books! Fill out a reading profile form and get one book per month hand-picked for you by the book experts at the Coos Bay Public Library, along with some other fun items (that you can keep!) in a monthly subscription box. We also have BookBox: Kids Edition! For the kids reading profile, click here.
How It Works
- Tell us what you like.
Fill out your reading profile (.pdf) and our reading specialists will pick out a book for you to try each month—based on your personal reading tastes!
- Get books hand-picked for you and fun goodies, too!
You will receive an email or mailed notice each month letting you know that your box is ready to pick up at the library (if you receive email notices, check your junk folder!).
You will get to keep your book for three weeks with up to two renewals (if there are no holds), just like other books you check out. The fun gifts included in your box are yours to keep but please return the box by the end of the month so we can refill it with next month's book and free goodies.
Complete the enclosed feedback form and return it with the book to help us improve our picks for next time. You can ask to revise your reading profile anytime to help us choose the right books for you.
To get started, ask for a reading profile at the library or download, print, and bring the completed profile with you on your next visit.
