The State Library recently added an awesome resource to Public Pioneer that
teachers, students and their parents can use to guide their search for
great things to read -- NOVELIST.

There are two flavors:
NoveList Plus<http://web.ebscohost.com/novp/search?sid=e5cfc2bd-ffa5-48dd-a039-827481f9f089%40sessionmgr113&vid=1&hid=122>
reading recommendations for all ages
NoveList K-8 Plus<http://web.ebscohost.com/novpk8/search?sid=751f892b-8514-431c-9e3d-ce9eab21ceef%40sessionmgr110&vid=1&hid=122>
reading recommendations for younger readers

To get the most of these tools, I STRONGLY encourage you to look at their
short training videos. Look for the link "HOW TO USE
in the upper right corner of the main NoveList page. They also have a
calendar of upcoming free webinars and archived webinars that you can use
to train your staff on how to use this really useful tool. Try it today!!!

Here's a blurb about the k-8 NoveList that Matt sent earlier this week:
