Need help finding something? We’re glad to say these mini-patrons have learned early on that we’re here to help.

~~~~

5-year-old: I’d like a book on dogs because apparently I’m a dog person.

----

8-year-old: Do you have any books on foxes, please? If not, raccoons are okay too.

----

6-year-old: I’d like a book about fairies. But not, like, a story WITH fairies. I want a book ABOUT fairies, with real facts about them.

----

6-year-old: I’m looking for books on cats because I like cats because I have cats.

----

7-year-old: I need a book about DNA, because I wanna bring back the dinosaurs.

Mom: We just watched Jurassic Park the other day. We clearly didn’t learn anything.

----

Kid: Do you have level three for this series?

Librarian: …Level three?

Kid: [showing the volume number on the book spine] I’ve read level two, now I need level three.
