The library has just taken stock of over 100 new and exciting fiction titles for teenagers. These books all appear on the 2012 long-list for the Carnegie Medal which is awarded annually to the writer of an outstanding book for young people.
From this set of books six will be chosen by the judges for the short-list. When this list of finalists is published in March you will be able to take part in activities, competitions and events related to the books. These opportunities are part of The Big Read 2012 and will be supported and promoted by Mrs Keiller, the librarian and the English team. Read the new books and begin to make you mind up which one should receive the award.
