Fairfax County Public Library is continuously adding new books, especially on topics that change rapidly such as technology. We’ve noticed that young customers are especially drawn to series; when they find one they love, they often read through the whole set! Many of these series enhance and expand the Fairfax County Public Schools curriculum. Below is a sampling of what’s new in juvenile nonfiction series.
We’ve all heard of Mark Zuckerberg, but how familiar are you with Ruchi Sanghvi or Aprille Ericsson?

By Lerner Publications for grades 3-6, these biographies are attractively designed with colorful graphics and photographs.
Calling All Innovators: A Career for You, also by Scholastic, is designed for students in grades 5-8 and explores contemporary careers. Titles include Apps: From Concept to Consumer, Genetic Engineering, Robotics, Food Engineering, Software Development, and Deep Sea Exploration.
