Has anyone asked you lately “what are you going to DO with your life?” ACK, just typing that made me wanna throw up my hands and hide under the desk. Seriously, what would lead someone to ask such an insane question?! But no worries, there is a fool-proof answer:

Answer: We have moved them out into the Adult Audiobooks–we did some research and it seems that age is not much of a determining factor in who checks out books-on-CD so we thought we’d put them all together so you all wouldn’t have to trudge back and forth across the library when searching for a title.

Answer: We have put all the new titles in one location, so it is easier for you to see what’s new in the YA Graphic Novel/manga collection. The new graphic novels and manga will have red stickers on the spine that say “NEW” and will be located immediately to the left of the YA Graphic section at Fairmount, and at the beginning of the YA Graphic section at Main. However, if the title you are looking for is super popular and super new, then you will probably want to reserve it.

Answer: ooops, forgot to tell you–we had lots of space once the audiobooks moved out so we jumped the nonfiction to over by the YA DVDs and then spread out the graphics so they could breathe a little.
Old Nonfiction book that I’m loving right now? Whatcha mean, what’s a zine? the art of making zines and minicomics by Mark Todd and Esther Watson.
