Main Recreational Reading: Alex Awards

The following Alex Award winning books have been added to the library's main collection and recreational reading collection. You will find them shelved in the new books display in the reference area on the main floor of the library or in their regular location.
"The Alex Awards are given to ten books written for adults that have special appeal to young adults, ages 12 through 18. The winning titles are selected from the previous year's publishing." - About the Alex Awards, YALSA 
These titles were purchased with library funds from the Dean endowment for juvenile fiction. Sue Ellen Ronk selects juvenile and young adult titles for this endowment
Alex Award winners are also featured on the IRC's Alex Award Winners Pinterest board.
