6.16.14 It’s FINALLY summer so here are some of our favorite teen books set during this glorious season!
The Absolute Value of Mike by Kathryn Erskine
Fourteen-year-old Mike, whose father is a brilliant mathematician but who has no math aptitude himself, spends the summer in rural Pennsylvania with his elderly and eccentric relatives Moo and Poppy, helping the townspeople raise money to adopt a Romanian orphan.
All kids and teens ages 0-18 can join a summer reading club!
Ages 0-3 get some fun pre-reading skills to do with their grownups at home. Visit with your families every two weeks to receive a brain-boosting rhyme card! At the end of July, earn a free book to keep!
Storytime registration starts on June 9th! This session, toddlers will not have to register for storytime.
While you’re waiting for storytime to start back up, have you checked out Tumblebooks? It’s a free service the La Crosse Public Library offers to La Crosse residents. Read some fun picture books, chapter books, or even non fiction books and enjoy puzzles, games, and videos!
We’ll see you soon!
5.20.2104. Need an idea for a great teen read? Stop by Main Library to use a brand new reader advisory tool— a wall of books! Well, to be accurate, it’s really a wall of the covers of some of our favorite books. Our Teen Advisory Council and teen librarian Linda put together a list of books we’d recommend to teens and then we made a wall of book recommendations. So, stop on in and check out our “wall” and see if your favorite book is on it!
