New Books for Summer

Did you know that Summer Library Program (SLP) is quickly approaching?  I bet you did, we’ve only told everyone a whole bunch of times!  But we can’t help it, it’s a great time of year for us and for all of you – as I like to say, we turn the Library upside-down on its head a little.  But the key part of SLP is the reading, right?

Of course!

So to help you get started are some great new books!
