Each month features a new topic. Go to:

» A message from the Dallas Public Library

KERA has invited the Dallas Public Library to recommend books on fun, relevant themes to mark our shared commitment to promoting reading and lifelong learning.

On the carousels below, kids of all ages can:

• Browse themed, librarian-picked book suggestions
• Click the titles to learn more about each book
• Reserve any they find interesting

Dallas residents with a free library card (get one here) can reserve books using the carousels, then pick them up at their chosen branch location.

Or, if your family lives in another area, these lists can serve as an introduction to good books on trending topics to explore in your own city’s library system.

The book themes and recommendations on this page will change each month.
