Out of ideas for what to read with your kids next? We have lists of recommendations for a variety of interests and reading levels - birth through twelve.

We are gathering lists of books by topic, award books and grade level recommendations. If your little one is into dinosaurs we have a list for them. Maybe they like to explore the pictures, check out these wordless books. If you need a scary story we have that covered too.

Librarian Recommended!

It's a pretty well-known fact that librarians* are big readers.  Many DPL staffers have chosen this field because it lets us work with books, movies and music every day. In a way, we've devoted our lives to these things. So it makes sense that a book recommended by a library staff person is probably a pretty darn good book.

We now have this nifty new page on our website that lets you peruse staff reviews of our favorite library things. Whether you're looking for a light summer read, a tale of adventure or a new website to geek out on, look no further!
