books on a shelf

Do you know a child? Are you responsible for one? Are you, in fact, a child? (Do children even go to websites?) Well, we’ve got new books for you!

Honestly, the guy who posts these is on vacation this week, so we thought we’d try something different. Your regularly scheduled Adult New Books will return next week. Maybe. Ordering kind of slows down toward the end of the year. We’ll come up with something.

Until then, we would be happy to hold any of these new children’s books for you! Download this New Book Order Form (PDF) and return it to any desk in the Library.
