What to Read?

Our Youth Services Librarians have curated these booklists to help readers find stories that are suitable for their reading level and interests. You will find that this page goes from picture books, to chapter books for both beginner and intermediate readers and then branches out into more specific lists based on themes or “readalikes.” Take your time browsing these booklists. Your children are sure to find a story that they will enjoy!

And remember, our Youth Services Department is always happy to give book recommendations and find stories for those who have more specific reading interests that are not covered by these booklists!
