Book Tasting

06 Feb Book Tasting

Do you want to keep a pulse on the latest titles? Are you looking for a few good books to read yourself or recommend to your child?

Come to the Kingsford Heights Branch of the La Porte County Public Library for a kids’ Book Tasting on February 8 at 3:30pm. Grab a “bite to read” from the titles selected by library instructors, chat with friends, and compare your tastings to find your next favorite book. Just like a restaurant tasting, we’ll sample several different kinds of stories, hoping you might be tempted to try something new.

If you aren’t able to make it to this event, use the Great Picks section at laportelibrary.org to find personalized reading recommendations from these free online resources:
