I grew up in rural Alaskan villages that didn’t have a library. Sounds horrid, right? No library? Well, one of the services offered by the Anchorage Public Library at that time was a monthly Box of Books. This meant each month a box of books would arrive on the mail plane and my father would drive our snowmobile to the runway to pick it up. When that box arrived it was the best thing ever. It was more exciting than Christmas morning!

There would be picture books for my little brother, Nancy Drew books for me, romance beach reads to keep my frostbitten mother warm, and snow mobile fix-it guides for my father. This box of books was where I discovered treasures like, “Where the Red Fern Grows” and “Island of the Blue Dolphin.” It was great entertainment for our snowbound family. When it came time to send them back, we would rank them, and then a volunteer on the other end would pick out our next month’s selections.
