Talking to your local bookseller is another great way to get ideas or come in and see us at the library. We’d be happy to give advice and make recommendations.

We’d love to hear about which books are going to be making an appearance in your house over the holiday season. Or maybe you have a question about good books for the young readers in your house. Drop us an email at hrlyouthscope@gmail.com and we’ll do out best to take some of the stress out of gift giving!
