The Alex Awards are given to ten books written for adults that have special appeal to young adults. The award is named after Margaret A. Edwards. Edwards pioneered young adult library services and worked for many years at the Enoch Pratt Library in Baltimore. The Alex Awards are named after Edwards, who was called “Alex” by her friends.
Below is my Pinterest Board that displays which Alex Award Winning books we have at the KHS Library. Scroll through the titles and click on one that interests you. It will take you to "the pin" for more info on the book. Like what you see/read? Then go ahead and check out the book! Happy Reading, Mrs Ornes

After teaching for 20 years, Mrs. Ornes decided to try something new and different - like being a librarian! She took some online classes, earned a Masters in Information Science, and feels extremely fortunate to be at KHS.
