Nashville Public Library (NPL) might be closed right now, but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favorite titles.

With our online catalog, you can find plenty of great digital resources to read, play, and even help your kids continue to learn while schools are closed.

On that note — our lil’ readers have found plenty to be excited about as they continue to read along with Read to Rise in this month’s update.

Last Book Read: I Won by Ruth Wielockx

“Ray is still obsessed with vehicles, and he loves this book so much he'll sometimes ask me to read it three times in a row!” said Yurina, Ray’s mother. “It features all kinds of vehicles from scooters, race cars, to planes, and I love that the kids come from diverse backgrounds. It's simple, colorful, and ends on a funny note.” 

Favorite Thing from Reading this Month: “These days, whenever we read a lift-a-flap book, he'll start to sing the “Open-Shut” song. He likes doing this with the book, Opposites with Frank Lloyd Wright,” Yurina said.
