Children, Tween, & Teen 2020 Book Round Up

DRAFT YS Round Up Soc Med Posts 2020
Now that 2020 has come to a close, we want to know - what were your favorite children's books of the year? Every week through the month of January, take a short poll (it takes about 60 seconds!) at and tell us what you think. We'll share the results at the end of January. This week, we're focusing on books that celebrate who we are and what makes us unique.

Staff Favorites from 2020

We are celebrating the great books, comics, movies, shows, and games that came out in 2020. This was a difficult year, to say the least, and we are thankful for the art that provided escape and enrichment. Check out our compilation of 2020 titles that librarians loved. We have recommendations for adults, teens, tweens, and kids in all different genres, from bestsellers to hidden gems.

Check out our recommendations!
