The 2020 Youth Media Award Winners were announced today! We were especially excited to see that the Newbery Medal has been awarded to Jerry Craft, author of the graphic novel “New Kid,” for “the most distinguished contribution to American literature for children.” It’s the first graphic novel to receive the distinction! The Caldecott Medal has been awarded to Kadir Nelson, illustrator of “The Undefeated,” for the most distinguished picture book for children. Our copy is currently checked in, along with a few other books that showcase Nelson’s distinctive work. We also have previous Caldecott winners and honor books displayed around the Children’s Room. Stop by and check them out! (Or place holds!)

Our Community Room is so full that I couldn’t even get in to take a picture of tonight’s event. We had to turn people away when we reached capacity. Thank you to the Friends of the Library for sponsoring and to Rachel Slade for visiting. Some still (surprisingly!) say that no one uses the library. Here is proof that your Acushnet Public Library is a vital part of your community. Please check out upcoming events at acupl.org. - Dina

I just wanted to share a cute little book titled Being a Princess is so yesterday. You can buy it on Amazon. Has great reviews . It encourages young girls to be whatever they want to be when they are older.
