"Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend. Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read." - Groucho Marx

Spring and fall traditionally find a lot of new books hitting the bookstore as well as library shelves. Some pretty big names are offering up a wide variety of titles to entice readers. It may be too early to find these titles in the library database but check back because they are sure to be “on order” very soon. (As soon as a book is cataloged as "on-order," you can place a hold on it.)
