As the last of the Thanksgiving leftovers disappear, the holiday season is in full swing. If you are looking for a special gift for a young person on your shopping list, we'd like to recommend some good books for you to consider. Each year the Children's Services staff at the Main Library and Indian Creek Branch compile a list of some of our favorite books from the past year along with some old favorites. Our list includes picture books, chapter books, easy readers, comics, and nonfiction titles. Click here to download a copy of our picks list, or pick up a copy at either Olathe library. Both libraries also have copies of the books on display for you to peruse. However, the copies on display will not be available for check out until after the end of the year. We are always happy to see if copies might be available from another library and request any titles for you. We hope you'll take time during the busy holiday season to read together as a family. Give the gift of reading.
