“Did I really earn this, or did I just wear you all down?” *


With the NFL playoffs underway and various awards ceremonies slated for this month and next, the library has chosen to highlight some of our award-winning materials this month.

In addition to the Academy Awards, aka the Oscars, there are the more well-known awards like the Golden Globes, Emmys, Tonys, Grammys, the Nobel Prizes, and the Pulitzer Prizes, but really there are so many more accolades than these.

In the book world, there are the aforementioned Pulitzers and Nobels, along with the National Book Award, the Hugo Awards, the EdgarAwards,  the Eisner Awards, the JamesBeard and the IACP awards, and the Newbery and Caldecott awards, just to name a few. 

The library has specific award winners, and it also contains materials produced by previous award-winning artists and writers.

In the words of TV announcers, “Stay tuned,” to the library’s blog, Facebook and Tumblr pages, and our Twitter account this month to learn more about various awards and the Sullivan library materials related to those awards.
