Junior Library Guild’s very own Leslie Bermel will present
“Twelve New Books Your Readers Will Love” at AAIM

If you will be attending AAIM, you won’t want to miss Junior Library Guild’s very own Leslie Bermel’s presentations, “Twelve New Books Your Readers Will Love” on Monday, April 20.
  • Middle/High Session – 10:30-11:20 am in Salons C, D, and E
  • Elementary Session – 1:30- 2:20 pm in Salons, C, D, and E
They also invite you to stop by booth #37 to learn why so many librarians have chosen Junior Library Guild as one of their collection development resources. The reason is pretty simple: JLG picks the best books of the coming year before they are published, so you can receive them as soon as they are published, at well below publishers’ list prices. The books they select are first-edition hardcovers with the best quality bindings available to libraries.
How can they promise to select award-winners before they are published? Experience. They’ve been doing this since 1929, and over 95% of the books their editors select receive awards or starred and favorable reviews from respected review publications. And they guarantee you’ll like the books they’ve selected. If you’d rather not receive a certain selection—no matter what the reason—they will replace that title with any other selection you’d prefer.
If you want to receive tomorrow’s award-winning books today, and at a great price, stop by and learn how. While you’re at their booth, don’t forget to enter their drawing for five free books. If you bring a copy of this e-mail and your name is selected, they’ll add two more books to the prize!
P.S. If you can’t make it to AAIM or won’t be able to make it to their booth, be sure to check them out at or give us a call at 800-491-0174. They’d love to hear from you.
