These lists are the result of hard work of each year Book Award Committee. It should be disseminated and promoted nationwide, to academic/public libraries and school libraries. It is not too late to widely spread them.

The lists are archived here. They are a showcase of CALA members contributing to communities and will be celebrated and promoted during this coming year CALA 40th anniversary commemoration.
