Just wanted to let you know that our books Overdue and the long out of stock Bibliovores are once again available at our store.

(Bill just found a box of Bibliovores. Thought those were long gone but hey, surprise!)

Audiobooks

Audiobook

We are down to the final day of Audiobook Month, but that doesn't mean you have to set aside your headphones or stop encouraging your patrons to grab some CDs for their summer road trips.

For summer staff picks, ways to celebrate, and an abundance of free materials and resources, please visit our sponsors at Books on Tape and Listening Library.

To learn more about the great voices behind some of the most beloved characters visit Recorded Books. They are currently spotlighting Thérèse Plummer, Jonathan Todd Ross, Tim Gerard Reynolds, Ramón de Ocampo, Jared Goldsmith, Davina Porter, and Jim Frangione. Their website also features many other narrators, author profiles, audio clips, and resources.

I'll be speaking at a few conferences this spring. You can see me:

March 30th (evening keynote) and 31st (morning graphic novel talk) in Hershey, PA, at the Pennsylvania School Librarian's Association conference.

May 3rd in Worcester, MA, at an event for the Massachusetts Library System, I'll be giving two of our keynotes, one on either side of lunch, and I'll also hang out a bit to swap stories.

May 4th in Portsmouth, NH, I'll be giving a at the New Hampshire Library Association Spring Conference.

I'll also be at ALA Annual in June at the first Library Comic booth #1321 with a bunch of new T-shirts and whatever else Chris and I can come up with.

Hope to see you at one of these!
