New Professional Titles

Happy New Year everyone! Let’s hope it’s a good one :) To kick off the new year, we have added a great selection of new titles to the District’s Professional Collection. Many were provided through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries (thank you!). As always, you can place holds on these through the Lackawanna County Library System’s Online Catalog or send me an email. For more information on each title, simply click on the cover picture!
