New Books! So many, fantastic reading options. Take a look.

Catalog record on OBIS
So many new books have arrived in the past two months that we can't keep up with presenting them on our tumblr account.  Here are just two of the new book covers to entice you to view more, and look them up in OBIS.  Better yet, stop in the library and peruse the new book shelf!
