So many things are happening in the library since we’ve been closed. We are still receiving wonderful, new books for you to check-out!
The Young Readers’ Room staff has been busy getting the Juvenile and Young Adult areas cleaned and tidied up for you when we are able to allow you to come back inside. In the meantime, please feel free to utilize our Books-to-Go program. You can reserve books three different ways: online through our on-line catalog found at akspl.org; or you can email the library at: email@example.com; or you can call either the Main number (909) 798-7565 or the Young Readers’ Room @ (909) 798-7674. Please make sure your library card number and your contact information is up to date as well (address, phone number & email address). Once we have your books gathered up for you, we will give you a call to set up an appointment so you can come and pick up your books from the front of the library near the main entrance.
For this month’s article, you will find all of these books in our New Book area under the author’s last name. Please consider the following picture books for check-out:
“What Matters Most” by Emma Dodd is a lovely story made up of questions to make a little one think about things. The illustrations were created digitally and there is some sparkle sprinkled throughout the pages! Emma Dodd has created yet another fabulous book for our young readers’ to enjoy.
Dianne White has written another lyrical picture book filled with color and wonder. “Green on Green” celebrates each season with spectacular colors and amazement while discovering something new that has sprouted, grown or was born.

A lovely book written and illustrated by Zosienka can be found in “The Moon Keeper”. In my first reading of this story, I was hooked and had to read it again! Very artistic illustrations fill each page as the little bear is on a mission to be the new moon keeper. Emile, the bear is very excited and takes his job quite seriously. As the moon cycles through its phases, Emile is concerned that he has seemed to have lost the moon! Check this book out today to find out exactly what happened to the moon and Emile!
My fourth recommendation for you all is “The Bear Must Go On” written by Dev Petty and illustrated by Brandon Todd. What could be better than writing a play for you and your friends to be on stage together and recite the words you all have written? Except, for these four woodland friends, one does not want to be on stage! Being the writer for the script is actually a lot of work, especially when all three friends have a lot of words for you to write down! The show must go on, but what if the show hadn’t been written and it’s time to raise the curtain? Find out when you check out this book soon!
“Windows” by Julia Denos and illustrated by E.B. Goodale is a discovery book. Walk around you neighborhood and search for the windows that are dark, lighted, decorated or plain. There are lots of things to discover in and around windows. Is that a family reading together? Can you see the family cooking together through the kitchen window? Do you spy the kitty cat sleeping on the windowsill? This is an Ezra Jack Keats Honor Book, which honors outstanding new writers and illustrators. Check out this great book today.
