What Our Customers are Saying

"Our latest JLG delivery to our library was by far the best selection of titles to date. We are always very pleased with the selections but this time they well exceeded our expectations. I am so looking forward to sharing these titles with our junior patrons! Thank you for providing the highest quality of literature for our young population!"

Camille Garretson
Morris Plains Library
"“I just can’t say enough about Junior Library Guild. They have provided our school library with outstanding books and services for almost five years. Every month my students and I look forward with anticipation to see which books we will receive next. Book titles are posted in advance, so if I have a copy of a particular book, or simply don’t want it, JLG makes it easy to replace that book hassle-free. I love that all these books have been pre-selected by our peers who have their pulse on the latest, greatest, best new books. I also love how these books are leveled into categories that are meaningful to my collection, such as, the High Interest Reading Middle School Level. But what really keeps me coming back year after year are my students. They simply love to read JLG selections.
I would definitely recommend JLG to anyone."
