Get more young adult books!

Our answer:

Thank you for your suggestion that the library acquire more books for young
adults. We have just hired a new Young Adult Librarian, Diane Mead, who is
very interested in hearing suggestions from young adult readers and in
buying the books that you want to read. Diane has been very busy reading
book reviews and ordering new materials, so you should look for her
selections to appear on the shelves over the next several weeks. If you have
suggestions for specific young adult titles you'd like the library to
purchase, please let us know.

New manga books for the graphic novel section

I think the library should get more manga for the graphic novel section because they stimulate your mind by using your left and right sides of your brain and the ones I'm requesting is Deathnote, Naruto vol. 29, 30, also Bleach, Dragonball and many more mangas. So I hope you get my suggestion because these novels are very cheap and not very high in price and I hope you get my request and than you for taking the time.

Our response:
Thank you for your interest! I always like to get suggestions from graphic novel fans, especially manga readers. We currently have a number of series on standing order, which means that we automatically get the new ones when they come out. Some of those series are Naruto, Fruits Basket, and InuYasha.

I will look into adding Bleach and Deathnote to our standing order list, as well as some other series. Please come talk to me if you have more suggestions!

I see you just did a show with Mr. Ray. How about a show with Miss Amy and also a show with Mr. Malcolm. Miss Amy is also a children's singer and Mr. Malcolm is a magition.

Our response:
Thank you for your suggestions for children's programming at the library.
While our program calendar has already been set for this summer, based on
your suggestions we have contacted both Miss Amy and Mr. Malcolm to gather
