About

Mackin partners with hundreds of publishers—to maintain a database filled with thousands of titles—for school libraries or classrooms to peruse and purchase. But what are the finest of those titles, and how can they best be utilized? That is where the Books in Bloom blog comes in! Showcasing the writing and creative talents of our collection development & classroom librarians, Books in Bloom features titles, themes, and strategies to help librarians & educators use our most popular titles. One week might see a review of an up-and-coming title or series. The next could unearth a list of popular titles based on an important theme. Popular authors (from picture books up to YA) even stop by to talk about their newest titles and the process behind them. Simply put, Books in Bloom is a great (and fun!) tool for librarians and educators looking to continually improve their collections.
