Is there an author or book you know the kids will just LOVE? Come fill out a collection development survey at the library! This feedback will help me decide what books to purchase.

Weeding will be done in our library regularly to keep our materials relevant. Is there any book or resource that we MUST keep because you use it with your curriculum? Please let me know! E-mail me
