Finding great books

Encourage your students to keep reading over the summer months, a time when reading skills may decline. Reading for fun is one of the best ways to help youth develop a lifelong love of learning and reading. 

Ask us for reading suggestions by email. We can help find books to match the interests and abilities of any reader. We also have a variety of formats including eBooks, audiobooks, and graphic novels. We'll email you suggestions that may include authors, specific titles, or book lists.

Explore our book lists for teens and book lists for children, as well as our staff reviews for teens and children. We have suggested reading for fans of adventure, fantasy, funny stories, nonfiction, and more!


May is American Indian Month

May is American Indian Month in Minnesota. In celebration, the Makoce Team at Hennepin County Library has developed booklists that focus on Native authors, culture, and community.


In addition, Hennepin County now offers an American Indian flag lending library, with tribal flags available for checkout for graduations, official public programming and ceremonies, and tribal events. To request a flag for your event, please visit Community engagement | Hennepin County.
