2014-15 Battle of the Books booklists - where to find them in LPL collections!

The Children’s Department serves children from birth through elementary school age – and the adults who care for them. We have collections of fictional and informational materials perfect for pre-, emergent and fluent readers. We have free fun programs – from storytimes to science to celebrations of favorite characters. We also offer plenty of do-it-yourself reading goals that you can meet at home—and make sure to visit us along the way! From reading readiness before school starts to keeping your brain strong over the summer, there's something for every child at the La Crosse Public Library.

Add a staff who love to work with kids and adults to open the magical world of reading and you’ve found the perfect place for kids in town

Bonus Fun Stuff

Want to read a children's book online? How about watching a short National Geographic video about flamingos or wasps? Maybe puzzles are your game. All this and more is available on the interactive site, Tumblebooks. (In-library and home use of Tumblebooks is paid for and available to City of La Crosse residents only).

You'll find stuff for preschoolers, early readers, and kids reading chapter books. Join the fun and let us know what you think!
