First of all, the library actually has very few Christmas-themed books – if you saw any Christmas books that you liked (online, in bookstores, wherever!), please suggest they be added to the library! You can suggest additions by emailing the library or by completing our quick survey at the following link: http://goo.gl/kqAXk5.
Second, just a reminder that we have lots of overdue books. Please check to see if you have any books, and please return them at the next meeting – and don’t forget to bring $1 for each book.
And finally, here are the January 2015 additions to the library:
