Hold That Book. Did You Know?

Over here at LP Reads Central, we are starting to dig into our summer reading lists (thanks to the Storyteller Bookstore) and every summer there is one fantastic feature at our Moraga Library that I truly adore: The Hold Shelf.

When you want to beef up the reading choices for your kids, it is an efficient and time saving way to pull together a set of books.  Head over to CCCLIB.ORG, search for the books you'd like to check out, and click on "Place Hold."  You can hold books that are anywhere in the Contra Costa Library system, not just ones at the Moraga Library.  

When your books are ready, you will be alerted and you can pop by to pick them up off the Hold Shelf.  Voila!  Now each of your children can have a full box, bag, or window ledge of well vetted options to read at their finger tips.

Here are a few that we are looking forward to picking up this week.

For the to-be 1st grader: "Grasshopper Pie and Other Poems" by David Steinberg

For the to-be 3rd grader: "Ichiro Suzuki" by Jeff Savage (Amazing Athletes Series)

For the to-be 5th grader:  "Inside Out and Back Again" by Thanhha Lai
