Frequently Asked Questions

  • What happens to my existing reservations in the old system?  Will I have to make them all over again?
    Our amazing Book Group in a Bag team has moved all of the existing reservations over to the new system before it went live. So current users won’t need to worry about losing any of their existing reservations.  If you do see any issues with a reservation, please email us at and we’ll get it cleared up for you.
