Virtual Offerings for Book Lovers of All Ages
By the LJ and SLJ editors
Welcome back to Your Home Librarian, a special weekly newsletter designed to help library patrons and readers of all ages make the most of their indoor time during this period of self-isolation and social distancing.

This week, we continue our series on organizing the books in your home, taking a deep dive into fiction genres and subgenres; explore the ways publishers, bookstores, and authors are connecting with readers virtually; and take a look at J.K. Rowling’s “Harry Potter at Home.” For aspiring green thumbs missing the great outdoors, we roundup some books about indoor and container gardening. Ravenous for your next read or (virtual) book club pick? Be sure to check out the list of hot-off-the-press titles (all available digitally), including books for kids and teens.

Have a question for the librarian? Reach out any time.
