When do I pick up my subscription? Book bundles will be available the first operating business day of each month and will be held for 7 days. After 7 days, the bundle will be cancelled and the books returned. If books are not picked up a second time, your subscription will be paused and you must complete a new form to resume your subscription.
What if I receive a title I've already read? There are no swap-outs with Ready Reads. We recommend requesting at least two books when signing up for Ready Reads and using the online form to indicate any series or authors you have already read.
How do I cancel my subscription? You can cancel at any time using the online form, by indicating on the comment card provided with each Ready Reads bundle or by contacting any Suffolk Public Library location.
