How to make a librarian happy, September 2012 (part 1)

This is a great week for the library!  So many good things have come its way.  The Scholastic order and the Demco order were there when I went in for a staff meeting, and last night my lovely assistant (read: boyfriend) and I cataloged the new books from Scholastic and started covering dust jackets with the protective covers from Demco.  Then, today I visited the Superiorland Preview Center and picked out another boxful of all sorts of new books.  Exciting!

Let me showcase the Scholastic books for you now.  Links will be to Goodreads when available.  Tomorrow, the books from Superiorland will be displayed.
