    One of the ways that new books are chosen for the Green Oaks Library is by our PTA supported subscription to the Junior Library Guild. 
    The Junior Library Guild is comprised of an editorial team that reviews over 3,000 new titles each year either in manuscript or prepublication stage. Of those 3,000 titles only 618 make it into JLG's selections. Nearly 95% of the JLG selections go on to receive awards and/or favorable reviews. 
    Junior Library Guild offers 52 book levels to choose from giving subscribers a variety of ways to enhance the book collection. Green Oaks has chosen to do collection development with a subscription to 5 levels. We receive one book each month in each of the 5 levels.
