Hey everyone! Summer Reading has begun and we know people are looking for good ideas for books! Check out our new Reader's Advisory blog, from the Youth Services Team here at CIDL!
Here, not only will you find booklists for several different age groups (built around our theme of Superheroes for the summer!) but we want you to participate too! Click on the blog tab at the top of the page and share some of your own suggestions for good reading this summer! We'd love to read some reviews of good books from our older Clarkston Kids, and maybe even see some art from our younger readers in the area!
Keep an eye out for our blog, since hopefully you can get some other suggestions from the Clarkston Community, and because we intend to update the site regularly with new material!
The library received an extraordinary gift! Ron & Elizabeth Wagner donated a bronze statue of children playing around a tree. This piece reminds us of the wonderful story of The Giving Tree by Shel Silverstein. We're so excited to have it! Please stop by to take a look!!
