These stories tell of children growing up in the segregated South, a brother and sister who run away to live in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, a boy raised by ghosts, siblings who traverse space through a tesseract, super-intelligent rats who work to save a family, and more.

The Newbery is given each year to an outstanding work of American literature for children. We have a near-complete collection of Newbery winners now. You'll find them in the Curriculum Lab on the Library's first floor.

Be aware: the check out period for Curriculum lab titles is only three days.

For more information about the Newbery winners, see the American Library Association's Newbery Medal Home Page.
