Good Books for Kids

Timely Reading & Viewing

We have developed these lists of e-books and other electronic resources in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. All materials are accessible for free with your Wilmette Public Library card.

For individualized reading suggestions during the Library's closure, please complete a Book Picks questionnaire, and a librarian will respond within 5 business days.

A Note About Our Regular Reading Lists

Starting June 1, Wilmette and Kenilworth patrons may place holds on Wilmette items online or over the phone and pick them up in the Library parking lot. Interlibrary loan service is not available at this time. You may also continue to access many items in electronic format. Click a book title to view its availability in the catalog. Electronic items are denoted with "Format: Ebook" or "Format: Eaudiobook."
