Children are encouraged to read anything at their reading level. The lists are only suggestions and examples.  Many of the books may be out being enjoyed by another reader but don't panic--simply place a hold or choose another book.

Many of the books on these lists can be checked out of the library in Quincy and many of them are also owned by other South Shore libraries in the Old Colony Library Network.  If the book you want is checked out, you can place a hold on it either at the library or online. Click on the underlined titles to check availability in the library catalog.
