Children’s Book Awards

Discover award-winning children’s books at the library.

November is National Picture Book Month, an international literacy initiative that commemorates print picture books. Celebrate as a family by reading the best of the best, which are now easier to find in the library than ever before thanks to our new “award winner” stickers.

Marked with a blue sticker on the book’s spine, these recognitions honor authors and illustrators who have produced outstanding works of literature for children and youth.

Marked recognitions include the Pura Belpré, Coretta-Scott King, Stonewall and American Indian Literature Youth awards; also included are the Caldecott Medal, Newberry Medal, Schneider Family Book Award and Asian/Pacific Award for Literature.
