Personalized Book Recommendations for Kids

Sep 28, 2020 10:57AM ● By Bella Caggiano

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a resource that could recommend reading selections based on your kids’ interests, likes, and preferences? The staff at the Morrill Memorial Library can do just that! With some input from your child or a parent or guardian, the librarians can offer ideas and suggestions, from board books to young adult novels.

An adult or child simply fills out the form on the library website to give them a reference of topics, types of books, favorite movies and TV shows, authors or book series, and they will create a personalized list just for them!

This program is aimed from babies and toddlers to teens, 14 and up. Below is a sampling of the questions on the website to get started. Once the form is filled out, an email will respond with their individual list.
