Introducing the Gale Free Youth Services Blog!

Our new Gale Free Youth Services Blog has launched! This is our new platform to host book lists, book reviews, crafts, and more. The blog includes it's own YA page where you will find Miss Kayla's monthly YA book review. Be sure to check it out and enter your e-mail to subscribe so you don't miss new posts. 

NEW!!! General and School Based Surprise Me! Forms

Not sure what your child would like to read next? Do you usually like to "browse" the shelves to decide on new books? Use our General Surprise Me! Form, and we'll put together a bag of books for you to pick up based on your child's age and types of books they enjoy. If you are a young adult reader (ages 14-17) please fill out our Young Adult "Surprise Me!" request form.

Need books to support school curriculum (teachers and caregivers) or for a school project (students)? Or maybe you enjoy more specific non-fiction topics? Use our School Based Surprise Me! Form, and we will put together books for you to pick up based on your needs. 

If you are unsure how this new "Surprise Me!" form works, watch this quick "how to" video.
