The theme of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge is “Tails and Tales”, so all summer we’re highlighting books about animals!
In the video below, School Age Program Coordinator Jennifer Johnson shares some of her favorite stories about pets. And you can find even more books about pets in the following list. These books are intended for kids ages 5-12.
Click the titles to browse and put them on hold to pick up at the Circulation Desk or curbside. Call (423) 434-4458 for more information on any of these books. You can also request a Book Bundle about pets and our librarians will pick some books for you!
