We are always looking for our next great read, but there are just so many titles out there! To make reading for fun easier, DC Public Library has teamed up with the Washington Wizards to provide a recommended Book of the Month that the library and Wizards community can read together.
Each month, we feature one book for readers grades K-2, one for readers grades 3-5, and one for readers grades 6-8 to explore on their own or with their families.
Finished reading the books? Share your thoughts on social media with @dcpl and @JrWizards and use hashtag #WizardsBookoftheMonth!
