Effective immediately, Sagebrush Books has changed its name and logo. The company is now operating under the name Tandem Library Group and can be found online at

"We have made a point of working in tandem with school libraries for a half-century and of providing exceptional customer service and expertise in library collections development. Our new name communicates what we do best, partnering with customers and publishers to get the right books in students' hands," said Bob Hebrink, CEO of Tandem. "We selected an owl for our new logo because owls are known for incredible vision, like the type of vision we have gained from our 50-year heritage."

The company is offering a special book collection give away in celebration of its new name and logo. Visit the company's Web site at and register online. One grand prize winner will receive a $5,000 shopping spree of books from the nearly 1 million books in the Tandem collection, along with free processing for their library.
