BPL Display: National Book Award Winners

The National Book Award winners will be announced on November 17. In honor of the event, we have filled our "large display" with past winners and a list of the current nominees.

Kathy also made this annotated list of past winners. In the process of making the list, she found that our library still has every award winner from the early 90s forward on the shelves.

This leads me to one of my favorite new RA rants. What does the library have the bookstores do not? The back list. Your public library has all the oldies, but goodies, that your local Barnes and Nobel does not. We have the out of print books you want to read right now, just waiting on the shelves.

This list is just one example of the variety of leisure reading materials you can find when you visit your local library.
