Chill Out And Read!

Slow down this busy holiday season and be better prepared with gift ideas from the following lists.  The right book from one of these lists might just turn your child or teen into a lifelong reader!  Preview quality books using these three websites and tap into what interests your child.

The American Library Association 2012 Notable Children's Books

The Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) lists books on fiction, non-fiction, poetry and picture books, published in 2011.  Selected ages are birth through age 14.

YALSA's Teens' Top Ten

Who better to know what teens like to read than teens themselves? Selected ages are twelve to eighteen years.

Reading Rockets

An outstanding compilation of many lists, which include award winners, books by themes, lesson materials, and so much more!

Once you make your book selection you can encourage your child to participate in the winter reading program, offered at some of the branches of the Mercer County Library System during December 2012 through January 2013. Check with your local branch for specific details!

All of the branches of The Mercer County Library System will be offering free bookmarks!

So...Chill Out and Read!
