Check out Coretta Scott King award winners

In honor of Black History Month, stop by and check out our display of Coretta Scott King Book Award winners in the library! The American Library Association awards this distinction annually to African American authors and illustrators for "outstanding inspirational and educational contributions." The award honors Mrs. King's courage and determination to work for world brotherhood and non-violent social change. Coretta Scott King Book Award winners are recognized for their "understanding and appreciation of the culture of all peoples and their advancement of the American dream of a pluralistic society."
