Staff Favs :)

 Isn't she just the cutest? I love this little dog and think she makes a great little mascot  for YA smiley Which is why I've decided to shake things up in YA. We've got all our reading lists, our classics, our required for school books, but sometimes you just want to read for fun. But maybe you've read everything by your favorite author and all the books your friends have suggested. You know the library staff is going to have lots of great suggestions, and sometimes it's just fun to browse. So why not make it a little easier? With that in mind, I created a "Staff Fav" label.
