This is the Pura Belpre Award book display Monday at Liberal’s Memorial Library. This award started in 1996, and it is named after the first Latina librarian at the New York Public Library.  The award is for children’s books from Latina or Latino artists or Illustrators or writers, and it is presented annually. In the display, some of the books are in Spanish, some are in English, some are bilingual and the display is of three scenes from three different books. The little girl on the swing display is about  a little girl who refuses to match, circulation employee Steven Sitz said. “She doesn’t match. She refuses to match. She wears stripes with plaid and all kinds of stuff and just ‘I am who I am, little multicultural girl, brown skin, red hair’ and pretty cool. It’s a great, great series from the way they were talking about it,” he said.

 

Liberal’s Memorial Library is offering several displays Monday. The display has pictures of new books that will come out soon. Those books have months and dates on the time that they will be released, and the books on the bottom of the display are books that have recently came out. The theme is dedicated to coming attractions. L&T photos/Giseelle Arredondo
