Q: Why do I see white stickers in the back of some books, but not others?
A: It’s one way we identify award winning books.
While there are numerous book awards out there, we focus our attention on several national and regional awards in different fields. We collect several major book awards that sound familiar: Pulitzer, Nobel Prize, and Caldecott to name a few. A few may not: Sarah Josepha Hale, Great Stone Face, and Ladybug Picture Book. Whatever the honor, the white sticker states which award the book has won; there are several titles that have more than one sticker due to winning more than one award.
The other way we identify award winning books is through our website. Click on the Award Winning Titles link under Quick Links to Other Resources to discover what titles we own.
And just so you don’t think we’re biased: we have a great selection of Academy Award for Best Picture and Best Documentary Feature winners on DVD.
Last semester, several students asked if we had any children’s books on various medical conditions. In response to those inquiries, please use this list, which we hope you will find useful.
While we refer to it as, “the new book list,” this monthly PDF lists all new materials – books, DVDs, children’s titles, audiobooks, etc. – acquired by the library in the past calendar month.
If see if an item is available, check our catalog. If you’d like to place a hold on an item, please contact the library.
Hello! Welcome to our blog!
While you will still want to visit our webpage to gain access to the online catalog and databases, we’ll be using this blog to let you know what’s going on at the library. We’ll be posting about new items, upcoming events, promoting existing and new services, and special projects our staff is working on. Be on the lookout for posts on new items and useful links.
In other words, we want you to get the most of the library, and this is one way to share that information with you.
As always, if you have questions, feel free to contact us by emailing, calling, or stopping by the library. We’re here to help. Our hours and contact information can be found on the right hand column of our webpage.
