• Most Wanted! (or books kids are asking for in the library)

    Syre Library welcomes book donations at any time.  If your child donates a book, a bookplate with your child’s name on it will be placed in the book.  If you provide a school picture we can also place it alongside the bookplate.

    Thank you for supporting Syre Library and your child’s love of reading.

    Here's a short list of book ideas, although any book your child chooses is an excellent choice!
