Personalized Reading Lists

For kids in grades 4-8

Every reader is different, and that's great! We want to get you books that you'll love reading. Take our online quiz about books you like and those you don't, then Librarians will email you a list of five titles we think you'll enjoy. 

For fourth through eighth graders only. Younger kids can get a children's book pack


NEW: Teen Book Bundlesteen_book_bundles2

Do you ever have a hard time finding what to read next? Let us get you some great books to try. With a Teen Book Bundle you’ll get a selection of Young Adult titles hand-picked by a Librarian and tailored to what you enjoy. Do you feel like some romance or fantasy or dystopias? Maybe you’re craving horror or comedy or stark realism, or something else entirely. Whatever your taste, click here to answer a few quick questions about what you like and don’t like to read. Then we’ll choose three great books and put them on hold for you to pick up at the Library. It’s that easy to discover some great new books, and they’re chosen just for you.


Get Great Kids' Books

Order a Children's Book Pack to get ten (or more!) books hand-selected by Librarians, just for you. You don't even have to come inside the Library. Just click your favorite themes and we'll put together a pack of books you can pick up curbside or at the checkout desk. 

You can get picture books, early readers or chapter books, and choose from topics like Natural World, Fantasy & Magical Creatures, Trucks & Trains, and Librarian Favorites. What a great way to discover new books for children!
