New Books: December 2014
Thanks to events like the Book Fair and author visits by Tim Federle and Fiona Wood, the library received a bounty of new books for students and teachers to enjoy. However, we keep an eye out for new books to order and add to the collection every day! Here’s a spotlight on some of the new books the library has added over the last few weeks. These books link directly to their catalog entry in Koha, our library cataloging system, so you will need a CCPCS login to access their call numbers. Their location is included, too.
Treaties, Trenches, Mud, and Blood (Hazardous Tales) by Nathan Hale
World War I set the tone for the 20th century and introduced a new type of warfare: global, mechanical, and brutal. Nathan Hale has gathered some of the most fascinating true-life tales from the war and given them his inimitable Hazardous Tales twist.
