In comparing the lists, there are just a few books that emerge consistently across lists.

Summer reading is in full swing in the Children’ Department.  Every day there are lots of kids here filling out "Lucky Library Lover" contest entries, guessing the number of stars in the jar, attending great programs, checking out the iPads, reading and hanging out.  The stairwell looks great filled with the beds that the kids have colorfully decorated.
