Going on vacation? Taking the kids? Let us put together a bag of books, movies &  DVD player, and other items that you can take on vacation with you to help keep the kids entertained.

And with our special Vacation Bags, you don't have to worry about the length of your vacation conflicting with the usual due dates of books and things. You can schedule to pick up the Vacation Bag before your trip, and then everything in the bag won't be due until three days after you return.

Just fill out the form below and turn it in to the Kids & Teens desk.  Give us at least a week to get your Vacation Bag ready so that we can make it extra great for your kids. Then have a great trip!
