Many of the books in the ASC's library have won the Children's Africana Book Award (CABA) sponsored by the Outreach Council of the African Studies Association. You can limit your search criteria below to select only CABA award winning books if you wish. Most of the books for younger children/middle school in our collection are CABA award winners. Our high school and adult collection is made up of a variety of works in African literature. More information about the CABA award and related topics can be found at Africa Access Review. The CABA Award is given to books that present accurate, balanced information on Africa, and these books are highly recommended.
