Picture books as well as juvenile and teen fiction and nonfiction will be on display each day from 8:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
Librarians may visit anytime during their convenience to look over the books, read reviews, and select a few books for their library collections. The books will be sent via van after the Review ends.

The list of books available at the Review is now posted in NHU-PAC. You can find this list by going to Librarians’ Tools tab and then clicking on the Children’s Book Review link.
