Printz Award and Honor Books

Earlier today the winners of the Printz Award and the Newbery Award for this year were announced.  If you haven’t heard of these awards, just think of them as the Oscars or Grammys for Teen books!   I am also happy to announce that APL has the Printz winner and all of the Printz Honor (runners up) titles and even the Newbery winner, so click on the titles to place a hold or see if they are available for check out!
