Presenting the 2016 USBBY Outstanding International Books List - Welcome Disruptions
By Terry Hong -- School Library Journal, February 2016
The Outstanding International Books (OIB) committee is charged with selecting international books that are deemed most outstanding of those published during the calendar year. For the purposes of this honor list, the term "international book" is used to describe a book published or distributed in the United States that originated or was first published in a country other than the U.S.

New Print/Braille Children's Books!
Santa Cruz Public Libraries has a new collection of 46 print/braille children’s books. These are picture books, board books and early readers that have transparent raised braille inserts added to the pages so both blind and sighted people can read them.
These books are already out and circulating through the collection. If they are not at your branch consider requesting the title through our online system and we can email you as soon as we have the item on hold for you at the branch of your choice!
