At the Puksta Library, we collect award winning titles, both books and movies, from a broad range of categories. From science to children’s literature, to poetry to documentaries, these award winners represent the best in their respective fields. Whether you are assigned to read a Nobel Prize winning author or want to watch an Academy Award winning movie, we hope these lists point you in the right direction. Each list gives a brief description of the award, along with call numbers to help you locate items. If you have any questions, please ask a library staff member for assistance.
In this exhibit, you can read online the complete text of books that have won major literary prizes, like the Newbery Award, the Nobel Prize, and the Pulitzer Prize. The books listed here are either out of copyright (at least in the US), or are online with the permission of the copyright holder.
Books listed without a link are not online at this time, but can go online if someone digitizes them.
