Representatives of nonprofit agencies (e.g. libraries, nursing homes, and senior centers) may request New Hampshire Book Bag service. New Hampshire libraries are given first consideration when booking Book Bag titles.
Deliveries in New Hampshire are by New Hampshire State Library van service only. Customers without van service must make arrangements with a van service library, or pick up Book Bag books at the State Library.
Groups from out of state using the service must pay shipping and insurance both ways.
List of Book Bag Titles Available
During the first half of 2023 NHSL staff will be working on updating this collection and the title lists may change as we go along.
The Book Bag Book List has been divided into 3 categories with annotations for each title:
Note: Most of the older titles in the list are mass-market paperbacks and probably have small print. You may want to check ahead so we may get a copy and see if the print size is adequate for the group requesting the title.
