The Putnam County Public Library, just north of Marvin's, offers many children's & teen's materials that our libraries don't have. Search their catalog.
Take your DePauw ID (they also accept Indiana PLAC cards and some cards from other libraries; contact them for details).
Monday & Friday 9 - 5:30
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 9 - 8
Saturday 9 - 5
To materials there, get a PLAC card from the Putnam County Public Library (or your home public library in Indiana). They cost about $65, & let you borrow from almost any public library in Indiana. Or request matrials via our InterLibrary Loan.
Works for children and young adults, by and/or about people of African descent (with a few related works):
Given since 1970 to African American authors and illustrators for outstanding inspirational & educational contributions, the Coretta Scott King Award titles promote understanding and appreciation, and honor and continue the work of Dr. and Mrs. King. This award is given by the Ethnic & Multicultural Information Exchange Round Table (EMIERT), of the American Library Association.
Awarded since 1995 by the Coretta Scott King Awards, to new authors and illustrators.
Teens may wish to read books for adult readers, including the winners of the Black Caucus of the American Library Association annual awards for fiction, non-fiction, and poetry written by African Americans, recognizing "outstanding achievement in the presentation of the cultural, historical and sociopolitical aspects of the Black Diaspora." We normally purchase all winners and honor books.
