Selecting a Book

Select books from the list of Notable Social Studies Trade Books for Young People.  You can browse by date or do a keyword search on the right-hand side for a topic of title and then limit your search by "Noteable Tradebooks."  

Once you have identified a book you would like to use, check Encompass to see if it is available in our collection.  Search for the title of the book and then change the list priority to "Best Match."  If we do not have the book, feel free to request it through Interlibrary Loan.
