The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman
What an enchanting book! When Elizabeth gets an after school job working at the New-York Circulating Material Repository, she learns that magic really does exist and that many of the magical objects referred to in the Grimm fairy tales are kept in the repository. The Table-Be-Set, which fills with food when asked to is a fun magical object. Snow White's wicked stepmother's magic mirror is mean and bad-tempered. Some of the magical objects from the Grimm Collection, however, have disappeared and some have been replaced with non-magical duplicates. Together with her friends, co-workers Anjali, Marc and Aaron, Elizabeth is drawn into the mystery.
