August is always a little bittersweet as it rings in the end of summer and brings the first glimpse of fall (and pumpkin spice everything!). I personally love fall but if you are feeling a little down, these Resource Center updates will hopefully lift your spirits!

We’ve added a Back-to-School Promotional Kit to assist in capturing your students attention this September, available now in Marketing & Outreach > Print-Ready Materials > What’s New. The kit includes a printable bookmark sheet and flyer. Print and distribute these in high traffic areas like the library or at school-wide events. We’ve also included a social media graphic that you can post to your school channels. Start your year with eBooks!
