Every year the National Book Foundation presents the National Book Awards to honor some of the best books published that year. The five judges for the award this year consisted of four published authors and one librarian. They chose winners in five categories: Fiction, Nonfiction, Poetry, Translated Literature and Young People’s Literature. This is a post consisting of the winners, with a spreadsheet of all of the longlist of nominees that are available at the library.

September 15-October 15 is National Hispanic Heritage Month. In celebration, I have highlighted various Latinx authors and books from amidst our collection that you can check out.
I watched a webinar a while back about libraries being more inclusive to LGBTQ folks. The presenter mentioned that you should not have to wait for pride month to highlight folks within the community. I do try to include some books with L,G,B,T or Q folks in all of my posts, but why not have a post dedicated to those books in the middle of March. Check out my recommendations and maybe add some of your own!
Well the library has been shut down until at least March 30th. Read this post to find some ebook resources that you can use as entertainment during these few weeks of self isolation.
February is Black History Month. It's been awhile since I've done a rec post, so I decided to cover some classic black authors that you should check out this month. This is far from a complete list of all the authors and books I could have included. So without further ado, here are some recommendations of books written by black authors about black experiences.
It’s the start of a new school year. Everyone is getting settled into their new routines. I for one have spent most of the past month eating out every day. In an effort to curb this bad habit I decided to check out some cookbooks and try to improve my skills in the kitchen. Now I’m sharing what I found with you all in hopes to inspire more people to become amateur chefs with me.
I’ve decided to write up a little post about one of my favorite genre's, romance. I've included a little bit of everything: data, history, and most importantly recommendations!
