Staff Picks: Children's Awards: An E-Book Retrospective


Curating the children’s award and honor book displays is one of my favorite activities during the academic year at our library. I’m always learning something new about building and promoting library collections, trends in youth publishing, and how combining this knowledge best helps us within the TC community. New books will eventually come to our JUV section. That will stay the same. But with everything looking very different this year, I figured it would be a good time to share a wealth of ebooks for younger readers already available through our ebook collections...and how to find more of them!

A typical awards display contains a litany of awards and book lists. While there are digital media awards for children - like the American Association of School Librarians' Best Digital Tools for Teaching and Learning and the American Library Association's Excellence in Early Learning Digital Media awards - I wanted to focus on materials that are already in our collection and available digitally."

Children's Awards: An E-Book Retrospective is online through October. Please stay tuned for the physical display of the latest award winners later in the year.

Staff Picks is curated each month by the Gottesman Libraries' staff to highlight resources on educational topics and themes of special interest.
