Kids Today! The Most Popular New Children's Books

Campaign Ends Jan. 31, 2021

KIDS TODAY! In 2020 Twice Upon a Time is working to strengthen our ability to answer our young readers' requests and enhance our inventory with the most popular books published in recent years. This is our  Kids Today! The Most Popular New Children's Books campaign.

For the month of June we have a special project: Kids Today! Special COVID-19 Project. 

Like many of our colleagues during COVID-19, we have suspended activity at most of our nine regular locations. But there is good news! Twice Upon a Time has teamed up with four community health centres, two literacy organizations and a community association – all able to provide new and nearly new books directly to more than 200 vulnerable families. And we can assure you that extensive and appropriate health safety protocols and procedures are being consistently employed by each group and Twice Upon a Time. 

Newly published books are often more expensive, or so popular that there is a long waiting list to borrow one from a library - even when they re-open. They are also the least likely titles to be donated. With Kids Today! The Most Popular New Children's Books, Twice Upon a Time will be able to purchase and give away the most popular and frequently requested new books for kids. This will be a huge boost to help sustain the interest of children and families who rely on our services.
