New Books in Time for the Winter Break!

One of the highlights of my school year as a librarian is when I get to unpack the new books that I have carefully selected. I like to put my hands on each book and read the dust jacket. The biggest problem is that I want to read every book. So it is also a highlight to see students check these books out for the first time. This week we actually had a student jumping up and down to check out a new book!

New Anime and Manga

We now have the entire Naruto and Bleach Manga sets!

These Anime series are two of the most popular. Follow Naruto Uzumaki from book 1 to 72 and Ichigo Kurosaki from book 1 to 64!
