Copies of CCBC Choices 2009, our best-of-the-year list highlighting more than 200 books published in 2008 and recommended by CCBC librarians, are still available. The CCBC can send them free to any public library in Wisconsin, and many schools/districts, via the statewide library delivery network. Go to
for more information about Choices and the delivery network. (If your school or district isn't part of the network, talk to your local public library about having us ship copies there.) Then just contact Megan Schliesman (
) with how many copies you'd like, and where to send them.
