Another year, another awards list! Every year the American Library Association, ALA, announces its list of winners for some of the most esteemed literary awards. Here is this year's list of winners in Children's Literature.
This January marks the 50th anniversary of the first publication of Flat Stanley by Jeff Brown. After being flattened by a bulletin board, Stanley uses his altered form to its best advantage. One of the best parts is he can now be mailed to friends and family for visits!
Have you ever browsed through the bins in front of the Youth Reference desk? That’s where we keep all our new titles so patrons can have a peak at them before they move to the stacks. I thought it would be nice to highlight some of the titles that popped out at me as I was looking through a stack of new books. Be sure to take a look through the bins the next time you’re at the library!
