"Okay, I got an answer from the store.  There is no logo poster this year, just some hideous "tips for..." posters that no teen will EVER look at.  Guess it's time to play with the downloads!"

"I got an email from the ALA store for 2015 TTW products, but it only had last year's poster.  I can't find the new one anywhere in the store.  What gives?  I need to order soon, as they are sooo slow to mail! "
