How do I find award winning books?
The first thing to know is that our award winning books are integrated into the entire collection. This means that there is not a separate place for awarding winning books. Since much of our collection is based on award winning and honor books, it wouldn't make much sense to create a separate place for them.
To find an award winning book is a two step process. It starts with the title of an award winning book. Libraries generally organize books either by author's last name or according to a system (numbers and letters, like the Dewey Decimal system in school and public libraries). Libraries generally do not organize books by title or illustrator.
