Have you ever wished you could see a list of all the Newbery or Caldecott award winning books?  This is something we get asked for quite often at the library.  Well, there is a nifty way to get this information in our library catalog.  Here's what you do:

1)  Go to the Library Catalog.  Underneath the search box you'll see a list of "Recommended Reading."  At the very bottom of that list click "More recommended reading lists."

2)  On the next screen you'll see a more complete list of "Recommended Reading."  Scroll down to the bottom of the list.  The Children's awards are at the end of the list.  Locate "Newbery Medal" and click on it.

3)  This will take you to a list of all Newbery award winning titles starting with the most recent winner.  You can see which libraries have the books available and which year they each won the award along with any other awards.  Click the "Details" link on the left to get more information about the title and to place a hold.ibistro-screenshot4.JPG

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 You can do this same thing for other awards, including the Caldecott award, Coretta Scott King award and more.  We are hoping to get William Allen White award winners added to the list in the not too distant future.  This is an easy way to find a list of those great award winning books.
