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.

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!

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.

In honor of Pride Month I decided to do a series of fiction and film recommendation list to the blog. This week I've created a list of science fiction/fantasy, romance, and poetry/short story anthologies. Two weeks ago I did adult fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels. Next week will be the final post about video media.

In honor of Pride Month I decided to do a series of fiction and film recommendation list to the blog to go along with the list of memoirs we posted last week. I’ve divided the books by basic genre and format starting with adult fiction, young adult fiction, and graphic novels this week. Next week will be sci-fi/fantasy, romance, and poetry/short story anthologies and the last week will be video media.
