What words would you type into your Library search engine to find MG Newbery winners and honors? Whenever I use those words my library tells me there is no such book.

Or maybe I should try a search engine not from my library? Where should I go?

I mean within the last three years.

Thank you!  :thankyou

You're just going to have to Google and go through the lists. Maybe something like: Newbery Award and Honors middle grade fiction.

Quickly searching, found these links. Missing the Honor books from 2009 to 2020.

For the current year, the award and honors:

https://abqlibrary.org/newbery

For a list of all award winners:

https://abqlibrary.org/newbery/All

All awards and honors up to 2008:

Hope this helps get you started!

I bet you could call and ask your librarian. My library has an online chat feature that has saved me a few times during the shutdowns.

Jojo, I did this recently myself. I just ran a search for the list of winners, then ran the titles through my library's online catalog. :goodluck
