Juvenile Book Award Winners

A brief introduction to Juvenile book awards that we acquire for our collection.


The SHU Library makes an effort to acquire some of the award-winning juvenile books each year.  The main awards collected are Caldecott, Coretta Scott King, Newbery and Nutmeg.  When possible, winners of the Pura Belpre awards are also obtained.  Each award is described briefly with links to the list of winners.
