You didn’t think I wasn’t going to mention the thing everyone’s talking about, did you? Just a reminder that we have two showcases on the catalog homepage related to the eclipse and other space stuffs – one for adults and one for kids. Use for a social media post or pull what you’ve got left for an impromptu display. Remember, people will still be interested in this after it happens – perhaps even more so, once they’ve seen it – and will want to learn more. Let’s hook them up!

Speaking of Vega showcases, these are a great way to highlight your print collection beyond the walls of your library. If you’re thinking about making one that goes along with the CSLP theme of ‘Adventure Begins at Your Library’ please let me know. I’d love to highlight it on our Summer Picks page!

The spring lists keep rolling in – The Millions has their Great Spring Preview, and Goodreads is here with 52 Sweet and Sexy New Romances for Spring.

We’ve got April picks from Amazon, Barnes & Noble, the New York Times, Time, and Town & Country. For all you genre fans, we’ve got sci-fi from New Scientist, sci-fi and fantasy from LitHub, mysteries and thrillers from Criminal Element, fantasy from Paste, and horror from Book Riot.

Did someone say genre? You bet they did! It was Becky Spratford, here with free resources to help you find the goods on the genres your patrons are looking for.

Could your nonfiction section use a shot in the arm? Let these these 51 Nonfiction Hits of 2024 from Goodreads be the medicine your collection needs.

In book club news, we’ve got April selections for Jenna, Reese, and Good Morning America, and in awards news, the nominations for the Hugo Awards have been announced.

Finally, #FridayReads: I had an Amazon gift card to use from Christmas, so I picked up something to help me with my summer goal of learning to sew clothes and have been reading it like a novel. (Bonus: It came with patterns!) And if I had to add a romance novel to get the free shipping, well, that’ll be nice and breezy for the weekend. In my (proverbial) earbuds is Glorious Exploits, by Ferdia Lennon AND American Flannel, by Steven Kurutz. Happy reading, and protect yer eyes, eclipse fans!
