Our Spring book order arrived last week. We love new books. We enjoy all aspects of new books:

1) determining the need

2) researching the titles

3) ordering them

4) anticipating their arrival

5) unpacking the boxes

6) sharing the excitement with our new librarian, Denise, and other NYSCI staff.

7) Offering them to you


Today we feature two great titles:
