Children's Staff Picks

Each year around this time, the Children’s staff of the Olathe Public Library compiles a list of some of our favorite books from the past year, along with a few old favorites.  The list includes picture books, easy readers, chapter books, graphics novels, and nonfiction titles.  There is something for all reading levels and interests.  Perhaps this list will inspire some ideas for gift purchases for the children on your holiday shopping list.  Or maybe you’ll get an idea for a good book to share together as a family during a special read aloud time. 

The staff picks on our list will be featured in special book displays at both Olathe libraries throughout the month of December.  Stop by the library to peruse the books, but the copies on display may not be checked out.  We may have additional copies available, or we can always try to get a book from another library if you’d like us to place a hold for you.

Below is a link to the complete list of our Staff Picks 2019.  We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.
