Collection Affection: Presidential Resources

By Becky Walton, MLIS, Collection Development
Here we are in a new year with new titles for youth about our presidents and first ladies. This article is a mix of #CollectionAffection and Weed & Feed! There are some brand new titles on here, but there are also a lot of revisions to existing works. To make sure that you have the most up-to-date materials in your collection, we’ve linked to both the new and superseded editions when appropriate.

Please note that the links in this bibliography go to Ingram’s online selection and ordering tool, ipage®, where you can get more information about the title. If you don’t have an ipage account, please contact us.
