Every year, the Texas State Library chooses 20 or so books that will appeal to 6th, 7th, and 8th grade readers.
When the list is announced, Bethany and Bonnie like to go on a shopping spree at the book vendor's to make sure we can get these books in your hands.
These are the books we're most excited about having available soon at Bastrop Public Library.
Even if you're not between the ages of 10 and 13 doesn't mean you can't read and enjoy books written for this age group! Did you read a book written for middle schoolers this year? Did you like it? Why or why not?
Ghost is available in the children's area: JF Rey and as an ebook and eaudiobook via the Libby app.
What book about sports did you enjoy this year?
The Truth About Twinkie Pie isn't currently available at BPL, so you'll have to ask for it for Christmas, or talk to Ms. Bonnie about getting it for our collection!
Have you ever made a recipe that is featured in a book? How did it turn out?
Hero is available as an ebook from Libby.
