#A Letter from the Get Lit Team:

We heard you loud and clear. You LOVE the idea of picking up a surprise book at the Library every month! The response was overwhelming (in the best way) and we want to thank you from the bottom of our bookish hearts! We knew you love books. But you really showed up!

To make sure there are enough books and swag for everyone who signed up… or those who might want to sign up in the future: We need to take a pause starting the month of August and really refine our process. So, stay tuned for updates!

Most importantly, thank you for your patience while we make Get Lit even better! We’ll be back later in the fall with a new book, a new bag and more information about the future of Get Lit!
