The Children's Librarians at the Longwood Public Library have put together several booklists on a variety of timely topics. These lists will be updated periodically to ensure the recommendations they contain remain current and relevant. We love to give personalized book suggestions too, so give us a call at 631-924-6400 ext. 236 or stop at the Children's Desk.
