I do not subscribe to Junior Library Guild because I do select every
book that goes into my  library and have the funding to do so. As a
reviewer for Teaching K-8 and Nick Jr. Family magazine, I read titles up
to six months in advance of their publication date. This means by the
end of July I have read almost all the picture books published in '05. 
I am consistantly impressed with the titles presented by Junior Library
Guild. They choose their titles before any reviews appear or awards are
given and they consistantly provide what I consider the best of the
best. They understand reading levels, developmental levels and choose
really great books.   I always look forward to seeing what they have
selected. As a professional I would never recommend that a library's
collection development be turned over to an outside vendor but  I do
think that if you are not able to read before selecting and want to use
part of your budget for excellent current materials Junior Library Guild
is a good choice.
