PLS Teens
  Dear Visitor,  

You may have noticed that the newsletter looks a little different this month. This is our brand new format that we hope will make it easier to share all the teen information with you. Hopefully you enjoy it and find it easier to read.

December brings thoughts of icy winds, falling snow, and bundling up for outside activities. Or maybe you think of warm fires, hot chocolate, and a fuzzy blanket. Either way, here are Winter themed books to enjoy this month.
