Plano Reads: Autumn and Fall

It’s time to get into the fall mood with these reads, from babies through teens.

We are constantly adding to the library collection, and here are the newest books celebrating autumn, crunchy leaves, apple cider, pumpkins and the slight decrease in temperature.

You can see these books below, and more, in our “Welcome Fall!” catalog list.

9/23/2020 Update: starting this Saturday, September 26 at 10:30 a.m. on the Plano Public Library Facebook page, we are hosting “Saturday Stories at the Farmstead” in partnership with the Heritage Farmstead Museum! The theme this week is “fall” (just like this list!)
