Get Ready for Summer Reading 2015!
If you haven't heard of The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz, it's quite possible you've been spending your summer under a rock. The book has been the most requested title of Summer Reading 2015. We own 15 copies, and there's still a waiting list! Why is it so popular? It features the teenaged children of Disney's most evil villains -- Maleficent, Cruella, Jafar, the Evil Queen -- and it has already been turned into a Disney movie called Descendants. If you haven't seen the movie on TV yet, you can catch it on DVD beginning July 31. To add your name to either waiting list, click on the blue title.
