Ask A Librarian - Reading Recommendations for Children

Are you looking for a good read-alike for your child's favorite author?

Do you need extra themed books for your upcoming class project?

Have a reluctant reader who needs one-on-one assistance from library staff?

We can help! Please fill out the form below and our library staff will contact you within 24-72 hours! For more immediate response, call the library at 319-377-3412.

What kinds of materials are you looking for? Are you requesting materials for a specific theme (dinosaurs, princesses, trucks, seasons, etc?) Do you need a read-alike based on your favorite book? Have a reluctant reader and you need some recommended titles?
You can request up to 25 items for a 3-week checkout period. Seasonal requests may be limited due to demand - such as penguins in winter, apples in fall, etc.
Do you need these items for a specific date? Do you want to suspend the holds until a certain date?
