Are your kids tired of looking at the gray skies of winter? Bring them to the library to pick up some books! Since winter solstice has passed, the days have started to get longer - and what better way to use the extra light? The benefits of reading during winter include reduced symptoms of depression and the feeling of improved well-being. Reading can make kids feel better!

We have a variety of books to help keep the doldrums at bay, such as funny, light-hearted juvenile and teen fiction, action-packed graphic novels, and fun picture books. We also have great juvenile non-fiction books about far-away places that kids can escape to, if only for a few minutes, and graphic novels that allow readers to lose themselves in action-packed illustrations.
