The 2008 Newbery Medal winner is Good Masters! Sweet Ladies! Voices from a Medieval Village by Laura Amy Schlitz.
In this book, a thirteenth-century England springs to life using 21 dramatic individual narratives that introduce young inhabitants of village and manor. Schlitz's elegant monologues and dialogues draw back the curtain on the period, revealing character and relationships, hinting at stories untold. Explanatory interludes add information and round out this historical and theatrical presentation.

The Library received information brochures about recreational camps for children in Massachusetts. It is published by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, and is designed to help parents make informative decisions when choosing a camp for their children.
The MA DPH also include a booklet from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control entitled "Extreme Heat: A Prevention Guide to Promote Your Personal Health and Safety." This was included because most summer camps include strenuous outdoor activities, and this guide outlines ways parents and children can prepare for, recognize and treat heat-related health conditions.
