These books will instill a love of the library in your young readers:
Make Tuesday library day, just like Lola. Lola loves Tuesdays because she visits the library, chooses new books, hears stories, and sees all the people who love books as much as she does!
I must admit, this is one of my favorite “library” books. When a big lovable lion comes into the library, right past the circulation desk, and heads for the stacks, Mr. McBee notifies the librarian, Miss Merriweather, that there’s a lion in the library. What’s she to do? An easy solution for Miss Merriweather – the lion can stay if he follows the rules: be quiet, no running, and be useful. Easy enough for Lion, that is, until there’s an emergency, and he must get help. Will Lion risk never being able to return to the library for breaking the rules?
We’ve all imagined what could happen at the library when the lights go out and the doors are locked. One night, an open window brings in some curious bat-visitors to the Library. Those nocturnal creatures immediately get busy finding their favorite stories, trying out the copier and water fountain, and letting their imaginations soar as they hear stories read by the colony elders. Full-page color illustrations will make your young reader feel apart of the bats’ adventures at the Library.

Q. wants to get a library card so he can check out the funny book the librarian read on Monday. Will he be able to borrow a book like the rest of the children?
