Placing holds for kid readers can be tough. Maybe your child likes to flip through all the EZ Reads or the kids' comic section, or maybe they ask the staff for any new princess or shark books on every visit. You may not know which specific titles or authors to request for those readers. Problem solved: TBPL staff are here to help!
Fill out our super simple form with cardholder contact information and then pick the format (picture book, graphic novel, etc) and a theme from a list of options. Don't see your kid's favourite topic listed? Let us know, and we will do our best to find the right titles for them.
- board books
- leveled readers
- picture books
- graphic novels/comics
- early chapter books
- chapter books
- CD books
Do you know a superhero superfan? a Minecraft maniac? or a Pinkalicious party girl? Visit our online catalogue to start searching, or ask Library staff at any Community Hub for assistance finding the right books at the right reading level to engage your child with reading. Can't make it into the Community Hub? Try our Book Butler service for individual recommendations sent right to your email inbox. We also recommend the Best Books for Kids and Teens website run by the Canadian Children's Book Centre as a great place to search for titles by theme or interest.
No Late Fees!
Library members may borrow all books and other materials from the children's collection without having to worry about late charges! We know how busy families are, so if you are a few days late returning books or other items, it's no problem! Late fees will not be charged for any children's items which are returned after the due date. All items borrowed will still have a due date and are expected to be returned in a timely manner. You will be billed for the cost of the item if it is kept more than 50 days past the due date.
