Sale! USB Drive with eBooks

Drives

Single USB drives containing our first 11 ebooks are on sale right now. Blank drives are $20, and these loaded drives are just $25 (they're normally $35).

Still lots of great gifts in the Unshelved store including what are likely the last Intellectual Freedom Fighter field bags.

If you're going to ALA Midwinter in Atlanta, I'll be there at Booth 2107. We'll be having a fire sale on Unshelved books and merchandise, including hats, conference bags, kids T-shirts and onesies, and more.

Bad Girls of Fashion

Badgirls

This week's sponsor, Annick Press, is know for publishing innovative, cutting-edge titles for children and young adults. Their new release, Bad Girls of Fashion: Style Rebels From Cleopatra to Lady Gaga, showcases women throughout history who have used fashion to challenge perceptions and influence culture. Click through for a look inside this bold new title. I requested a copy from my library based solely on the Table of Contents!

Gene's and Chris's New Library Comic

Librarycomicpanel

Please check out the new comic I'm doing with Chris Hallbeck at librarycomic.com. (We wanted to wait until we had a bit of content up before we told everyone about our new venture, and by the time you read this there should be at least six comics posted.)

Library Comic will have new strips five days a week, Monday through Friday. You can also read all of the comics in our weekly newsletter or via Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr.

The new library is pretty big, and so is the number of staff. It's going to take a while to get to know them all, and we think they're going to help us tell different kinds of stories.

Please help us along by telling people about the new strip, and by sending me your real-life tales of library wows and WTFs.
