If a book you want is checked out, you can place a hold with your library card if have a PIN set up with your account. If you don’t have an account with a PIN set up, you can do that on your next library visit!  It’s free.  Having a PIN also allows you to manage your library account from home, so you can always see what books are on your account, and when you need to return them.

Do books bore your child?  Need more variety to choose from?  Do you have one of those ‘fussy’ readers at home?  No worries.  Children don’t want to read all the same books.  They have individual tastes.  Your child just has not found the right sort of book yet.

Here are some more suggestions for books!  Booksource separates books within each level by Fiction and Nonfiction.  When you click on See All, to the right of  those two categories, the menus change to display plenty of book categories, one of which will surely appeal to your child.  So to get started:

  1. Follow the link to the level page.
  2. Choose whichever genre appeals, Fiction or Nonfiction.
  3. Click See All.
  4. In the left margin a menu appears, sorting book types, allowing you to focus on a list that better reflects individual interests.
