Book Talks: Picks for Grades K-8

From popular titles to hidden gems, find your next favorite book here!

Welcome to Book Talks!

This is the online home for the popular presentations Vernon Area librarians usually give in person at local schools. To find books for your student, use the tabs up top: view and choose titles by grade, recommended by your trusted youth librarians. Borrow a book by clicking on the title and placing the print edition on hold to pick up (either inside the library building or through the new drive-up window) or checking out the e-book or digital audiobook if available.

You can also watch brief Book Talk videos: visit VAPLD.info/YouTube to browse by grade level.
