What are Newbery books? Every year since 1922, a division of the American Library Association has awarded the John Newbery Medal to the author of the “most distinguished” new contribution to children’s American literature.

Who was John Newbery? Newbery was a book author and publisher in 1700s Britain. He’s credited with first making the mass publication of children’s literature profitable and sustainable. 

Newbery Medal books are perennially popular. Some titles you might recognize are A Wrinkle in Time, The Twenty-One Balloons and Bud, Not Buddy

Our collection also includes Newbery Honor books (runners-up) such as Charlotte’s Web.
