Curbside Requests are for materials that are currently available at the Bourbonnais Public Library. All other hold requests can be placed as usual—by calling the Library and speaking with Library Staff, or by placing a hold through your PrairieCat account. During Curbside, the Library will also offer a Mystery Bag service. Mystery Bag materials will be chosen by Library Staff based on your genre interests and any other details you'd like to share with us.
