Default What books should I get?

I do the ordering for my Library for food type books, this includes homebrewing type books. The ones we have are not very kind to the beginner. Which books do you guys think are a must have?

Thanks

I have these two so far and they do a good job of covering the basics.

I would agree with what everyone else has said... I wish my library had someone who cared about homebrewing in charge of ordering books... You should transfer to Northern Minnesota! I guess I shouldn't complain, as a result of the crappy library selection I just ordered them for MY library...

No doubt... I would be in heaven if someone ordered brew like a monk and radical brewing at my library... but I guess I could donate a copy to them!
