The public library is a tremendous resource. Librarians are a great resource for book recommendation. I understand some may want to search amazon.com for the latest but librarians have the inside scoop about authors that may not make be on some top ten list. Below are a few childrens & YA library finds recommended by my local librarian at the Aurora Public Library in Colorado.

Coming in Fall 2013 Every day library staff share books they love with their users. Now, you can reach beyond the library walls to tell the rest of the country about the books you can’t wait to share. LibraryReads – a new program, launching this fall, harnesses the value of “library staff picks” into a single nation-wide discovery tool, a monthly list of ten newly released must-reads.
