FROM THE LIBRARY
New Manga section
Thanks to the PTO and the success of the book fair, I’m building a new manga section in the library. As I get things processed, I will add them to the new section, so there will be new stuff appearing for a while. It’s already been very popular!
Featured Book of the Week
A First Time for Everything is a graphic novel about a young man’s travels in Europe while he was in middle school. Based on Dan Santat’s real life, this is a great read!
