Our Discovery Packs are perfect to help prepare your toddler, preschooler or Kindergartener for their developing lives.

The winners of the 2022 American Library Association Youth Media Awards have been announced! What an exciting time for youth librarians—basically our Oscars! Every year, groups of dedicated committee members meet to discuss the best of the best in literature, both print and audio, for youth and young adults—including our very own Miss Julie who is serving on the Notable Children’s Book Committee!


Who are the ALA YMA winners this year? Let’s highlight the three most well-known honors. The John Newbery Medal was awarded to Donna Barba Higuera (The Last Cuentista) for authoring the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children. The Michael L. Printz Award was given to Angeline Boulley (Firekeeper’s Daughter) for the book that exemplifies literary excellence in young adult literature. The Randolph Caldecott Medal was awarded to Jason Chin (Watercress) for illustrating the most distinguished American picture book for children.


Since February is also Black History Month, we would like to spotlight the winners of the 2022 Coretta Scott King Book Awards. These awards are presented to outstanding African American authors and illustrators of books for children and young adults that demonstrate an appreciation of African American culture and universal human values.


The Coretta Scott King-Virginia Hamilton Award for Lifetime Achievement was awarded to Nikki Grimes. The Coretta Scott King/John Steptoe New Talent Author Award was given to Amber McBride for Me (Moth). For the title, Unspeakable: the Tulsa Race Massacre, Carole Boston Weatherford was awarded the Coretta Scott King Author Award AND Floyd Cooper was awarded the Coretta Scott King Illustrator Award.


You can find the winners of various other youth media awards and notable lists on the ALA website. Want to read these award-winning books and learn more about what makes them so extraordinary? You can search for these titles in our catalog or stop by the Youth Services Desk for more information.
