Laurel Books: Independent bookseller Laurel Books, often seen at the ACL Institute and other workshops for children’s librarians, has moved to a new location and is struggling to maintain their business. The new location is at 1423 Broadway in Oakland, CA. One way people can help is to purchase books to donate to Children’s Fairyland by visiting their special website: www.laurelbookstore.com/fairyland-wish-list .
