  • Summer Reading   Are you looking for ideas on what you should read this summer?  This Google document contains various selection's from ALA's Top Ten Lists for Young Adult Readers.

     

    What more information?  This database provides access to all of YALSA's annual selected books and media lists, awards, and honorees. These resources are developed by library staff and educators across the country to support the collection development and readers' advisory work of library staff.

     

    The books and media provided in these lists and databases have been selected for teens from 12 to 18 years of age, and span a broad range of reading and maturity levels. We encourage adults to take an active role in helping individual teens choose those books that are the best fit for them and their families.

    What the Night Sings Book Cover Looking for a new book to enjoy?  Check out this week's recommended reading.  

    Each week, the library will post a new book and provide a brief synopsis.

     After losing her family and everything she knew in the Nazi concentration camps, Gerta is finally liberated, only to find herself completely alone.

     

     Without her papa, her music, or even her true identity, she must move past the task of surviving and on to living her life. In the displaced persons camp where she is staying, Gerta meets Lev, a fellow teen survivor who she just might be falling for, despite her feelings for someone else.  

     

       With a newfound Jewish identity she never knew she had, and a return to the life of music she thought she lost forever, Gerta must choose how to build a new future.
