At ALA Midwinter 2019, the CODES Book & Media Awards committees revealed the year’s most outstanding titles for our library collections. There was a new award this year, the CODES List, which will highlight a new theme or subject each year. The inaugural list was cookbooks. Thank you to the award committee members for all your hard work!
