Latino Children's Book Awards and Their Presence in Public School Media Centers across the Research Triangle Area of North Carolina.
This study examines the library collections of twelve elementary schools from four counties in the Research Triangle area of North Carolina with the largest numbers of Hispanic students to determine if and how many of the award-winning Latino books were included. Data collected was based on a list of book titles that have received one of these awards. All twelve elementary schools had fewer than fifty percent of award titles in their collection. Of those titles that were present the majority were in excellent to fair condition.
