"Thank you for keeping me informed, you're the best!"
- Lita Slaggle, Library Director of the Baylor County Free Library, Seymour, TX
“Many thanks to Kids Reference for making my job easier!”
- Patricia Galbraith, Library Manager of the Bell Memorial Library in Nunda, NY

I work in a small library with a limited budget and staff.  I very much appreciate the recommendations that are given to me.  It saves m time in trying to figure out what our young readers want and it saves the library money because the books are circulating, not just taking up space on the shelves. 
“Kids Refernce is my favorite bookseller of all the companies that I buy from. They make my job a lot easier. They are great!”
- Beth Gilbert, Librarian, Moutain View, MO

I always buy my kids fiction from Kids Reference. They have never steered me wrong on books sets. In fact, because of them I am way ahead of the game as far as cool books on the library shelf. By the time the kids in this very rural library hear about the books they have been on the shelf for six months to a year thanks to Kids Reference. They give me a good price, good advice and understand if I cannot afford to buy at that time. They also let me know when there is a big sale. Kids Reference is my favorite bookseller of all the companies that I buy from. They make my job a lot easier. They are great!

“I was on your website for over 40 minutes. It was easy to navigate, colorful, and informative.
- Gail Adkins, Librarian, Spring Hill Public Library, Spring Hill, TN

I didn't really expect much when I clicked on your website, but I was very pleasantly surprised and impressed. When companies send me their links I usually look at them for a few minutes and delete them. I was on yours for over 40 minutes. It was easy to navigate, colorful, and informative. Many of the collections we already have and quite a few we have just recently ordered due to patron requests. I printed out some of the list for future reference.…

I like how the books are broken down into age groups and categories while keeping it simple and compact. I checked out the Summer Reading section and almost cried. From February to May I was scrambling to find anything and everything I could to go with the "creative" theme, and none of the other children's book companies we deal with were very helpful.

“Kids Reference always has "the know" for what is popular out there and what I should be tempting my customers with. They have never steered me wrong.
- Susan Hart, Rushford Public Library, Rushford MN

I have been meaning to write this note, singing the praises of Kids Reference as a for over a year! They are terrific and one of only three calls that my staff knows to pass along to me — even when we are busy.

We are very small, with limited resources, but Kids Reference always has "the know" for what is popular out there and what I should be tempting my customers with. They have never steered me wrong. Even when it might take a while for something to catch on locally, it always does and then I have a long waiting list.

I do everything from story time, to teaching PC classes, speaking to local social organizations, preparing the budget, helping the kids with homework after school, to shoveling the sidewalks! My time is precious, and I count on Kids Reference to keep me abreast of what is new and exciting for my collection. I should also mention that the quality of the products is far superior to what other vendors offer.

Our little town was devastated by a flood in 2007 and we are coming back strong. Kids Reference REALLY helped out with collection ideas when it was hard for me to think of anything past the next recovery step.

If only all my calls had someone like Kids Reference on the other end!
