A book is a gift that can be opened again and again. And a book that is part of the Friends of the Parkland Community Library's Milestones Program honors the gift recipient and enriches the whole community. Read more about this program on the Parkland Community Library's website.
If you want to give a book that will be treasured by just one person, check out Kidsreads.com's list of "What to Give, What to Get" book giving (and requesting) ideas. While on this site, scroll down a bit and print out an entry form to win the first book in Ann M. Martin's (Baby-sitters' Club, The Doll People) new series, Main Street. Martin's new series is about orphaned sisters who go to live with their grandmother and find a new community and a new home.
For those sometimes difficult to please teens, visit Teenreads.com for a separate "What to Give, What to Get" list designed just for this age group. Teenreads is giving away a basket full of the best books written for teens, so take a few moments to enter that contest, too.
The Parkland Community Library's winter holiday picture books and music CDs are now on display on the counter above the Juvenile CD drawers. Stop by often to renew your supply of seasonal stories and songs.
