If you like reading historical fiction, pick up Titanic: Voices from the Disaster for your next read.  This book was voted one of the best nonfiction (informational) books of the year, but it reads like a story.  You’ll get to know the passengers and workers like you would characters in a chapter book.  Authentic photographs included in the book help the story come alive.  This is a page turner you won’t be able to put down, even knowing the story’s tragic end.

Let's say you get home from school, have a snack, ride your bike, then start thinking about homework. You pick up your backpack, look inside and whoa! Something's missing - your Math book. Don't panic. Call or come into the library. We may have a copy of your Math book for you to use. We have many textbooks from area schools. We keep them for occasions just like this - when you forget to bring yours home. See you at the library.

After the video games have been played and played and even you're sick of them... and there's nothing on TV...winter break boredom could set in.  Don't let it happen - read with a friend. When I'm helping kids find good books they often tell me about titles their friends are reading. Reading the same book at the same time can be fun. You can talk about the book while you're reading it or wait until you've both finished. In Kids' World we're lucky to have many copies of a lot of titles. We also have Book Discussion books  - so you could read with lots of friends in a group read. There's everything from mysteries like Chasing Vermeer to adventure like Stormbreaker and fantasy like Gregor the Overlander.  We can put some copies of any of these down at the Drive-up Window. Just give us a call at 847-506-2620. So don't get bored  - talk to some friends - pick out a book and get reading!
