Surprising Collections

What’s in a Surprising Collection? As the community grows and changes, so does the focus of our collections.  On this page you’ll find collections of items to check out that educate and entertain, all for Bay County residents with a valid Bay County Library System library card. These collections are housed in different locations within our library system, but items can be sent to the location closest to you, often in just a day.
