Books for Kids and Tweens

Recommended by your librarians!

Please use the lists below as a starting point for recommendations. Children in the same grade level often have different interests and reading skills, so please choose books that your child enjoys regardless of the grade level category we've placed them in.

Need help selecting books for your child? Book Bundles are for you! Fill out this form to have a Book Bundle selected for you by one of our staff members based on your child's likes and dislikes! An NHCPL staff member will select up to 5 Young Adult Items or up to 10 Children's Items for you to pick up at the location of your choice.
