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.

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.
