Hot Kid’s Series for Hotter Summer Days

While the summer reading program is over for kids and teens, the adults are still reading for a Bingo! If your teens and children haven’t turned in their summer reading logs, make sure to bring it by the library soon to get a t-shirt.

Just because summer reading is over, doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything to do at the library! The month of July is going to be really busy in the children’s department (and every other department) of the library and parents are encouraged to pick up a schedule in the library, look online at or give us a call at 626-0180. For July, we have board game days, movies, games on the lawn, Roblox days, rainbow looming and, of course, story times. All activities are free of charge for children in the community.

While reading to earn a t-shirt is over, we still have a lot of great books at the library. Here are some of the series that are hot, hot, hot this summer:

The Kylie Jean books star Kylie Jean a lovable girl who has a lot of personality. Kids who like Junie B. Jones or Judy Moody will like these books because of their sparkle and pinkness and parents who hate Junie B. or Judy Moody will like the kinder, gentler Kylie Jean. Kylie Jean always gets into a bit of mischief, gets out of the scrape and then learns a lesson. Kylie Jean is the Spelling Queen, Cupcake Queen, Singing Queen and more.

For slightly older readers (both boys and girls) we have the Geronimo and Thea Stilton books. These books with a mouse hero and heroine are great beginning chapter books because they have a lot of pictures, use easy words and are in color. The series goes on and on, so it will keep kids reading for trip after trip to the library.

For fans of Diary of a Wimpy Kid who have finished Hard Luck and are looking for something to read before the ninth book, The Long Haul gets released in November, we have a lot of great series that are similar. The Origami Yoda series by Tom Angleberger. This series of five books (plus the activity book) is so much fun, and you don’t have to be a Star Wars fan to get it. The book is based on journal entries to find out whether or not the origami yoda is wise enough to give good advice.

A second Wimpy Kid read-alike is the Loser List by H.N. Kowitt. When a middle school kid finds himself on the loser list on the inside of the girl’s bathroom wall, he gets caught removing his name and ends up getting detention and changing the way everyone at school looks at him. There are four books in the series so far.

Finally, we have a lot of the popular series books in Spanish. We have Dork Diaries, Wimpy Kid, Goosebumps, Judy Moody, Stink, Junie B. Jones, Harry Potter and more. These are great for parents to read to their kids or for kids who are learning Spanish to read during the summer so they don’t lose what they’ve learned in the school year.

We are always ready to give book recommendations to kids and their parents at the library. Check out some of our new books today or pick up an old classic.
