You can use Novelist K-8 to find your next great read! You can find the link from the electronic resources page on our website, under "Literature and Reader's Advisory." (If you're outside of the library, you'll need your library card number to sign in.)
It's a great resource that tells you all about great books for kids in grades K through 8. If you're just looking for information about a book, you can find a summary and reviews. You can also explore lists of good books that Novelist has created. For instance, if you like stories with animals in them, there are a whole bunch of book lists created to help you find a book you'll love - a list of books in which animals tell the stories, books about horses, books about cats, and so on. There are book lists for horror, fantasy, mystery, adventures, graphic novels, and much more.
And remember, if you find a great book that's not here in the library, tell us and we'll put a hold on it for you!
To get to Novelist K-8 from the River Forest Library homepage, go to "Electronic Resources," then "Reference Databases," and under "Literature and Reader's Advisory" you'll find the link.
