From Library Staff

Anne Shirley, an irrepressible 11-year-old orphan, is sent to live with the Cuthberts by mistake - but it's a wonderful mistake as Anne becomes a part of the rural community.

Have you met the plucky orphan girl who's come to live with the elderly brother and sister at the house called Green Gables? Anne wasn't what they asked for - they wanted a boy to help with heavy chores - but she's what they - and the community - need. Read all the books in the series to follow A... Read More »

A quaint, darling light read!

Anne of Green Gables by Lucy M. Montgomery has captured the heart of an 11 year old girl like no one I’ve ever read before. Her writing style is clear and descriptive. I found myself laughing out loud so many times. Anne and all the characters grow noticeably in the story. Anne has a never ending imagination and a very strong sense of loyalty. This story is filled with love, loyalty and faith.

I would recommend the story for adults, young adults and juvenile readers it is also a perfect read a loud to share with your children.

I supplemented reading with the audio on the Libby app, particularly the version read by Laurie Klein. Ms. Klein did a very nice job with the voices.
I look forward to reading more of this series.

I'm not sure how, but I missed reading this as a child, and I'm very sorry I did. I think the best way to describe this novel is like a warm, cozy blanket. Anne of Green Gables takes us back to a time and place when picnics were the highlight of the summer, and children would spend hours picking flowers and playing by streams and using their imaginations. Where the simple joys were the best, and life was fulfilled for the grown ups by hard work, gossip and going to town. Anne comes to Green Gables on Prince Edward Island in Nova Scotia in the late 1800's quite by accident, and bewitches everyone she meets with her optimism, her joy, her clumsiness and her daydreams. The novel itself takes place over about 5 years- from the time Anne is 11 until she is 16. She goes to school and plays with her best friend Diana, makes plenty of mistakes, and just charms the pants off of her adults, a brother and sister named Marilla and Matthew.
I absolutely enjoyed myself reading about Anne and a simpler way of life. It certainly makes me want to visit Prince Edward Island- and I can definitely see myself continuing with the series.

I can hardly believe I never read this book growing up! I absolutely loved reading about quirky, charismatic, and wholly unique Anne Shirley. Montgomery was an incredibly talented author with as much imagination and artistic style as our Anne. The story of an eleven-year old orphan who finds an unexpected home in the least likely of places, Anne of Green Gables is the first in a series. Everyone should read this delightful book - I can't wait to continue the series, although I am cautious about the sequels remaining quite as good as the first!

A wonderful tale about a thrilling and an imaginative girl named Anne. Her sweet nature draws happiness and joy where ever she goes and her optimistic yet romantic view on life draws readers to love her charisma. Anne of Green Gables is by far my top 10 books and makes me eager to read all the books! So far I love it!

Love it! My sister hates it! It's just amazing!

Note to self: remember where you left off in the series and continue!
Second note to self: ask mom if the TV series is any good!

Anne of Green Gables is a classic "children's" novel that anyone can read. The story follows a young orphan girl given a chance at having a family with two middle-aged siblings, in the heart of Prince Edward Island. The story truly is a break from reality, allowing the reader to become engulfed in the mind of a young Anne with her unique imagination of the world around her. This book inspires not only my vocabulary, but how I choose to look at the world. The more times you read the book, the more you notice about the characters & their stories. Definitely one of my favourite children's novels. 5 Stars

A sweet, classic tale with a fiery heroine that I love and always will love. There is hardly any romance, but in the following instalments… Anne ❤️ Gilbert Blythe.
One age suitability note: technically anyone 6+ could read this, but probably only tweens and teens would find it interesting.

It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will.

There's such a lot of different Annes in me. I sometimes think that is why I'm such a troublesome person. If I was just the one Anne it would be ever so much more comfortable, but then it wouldn't be half so interesting.
