US Library: Outstanding Books for the College Bound

2019 Outstanding Books for the College Bound and Lifelong Learners

The OBCB list is developed every five years as a tool for various audiences (students preparing for college, educators, librarians, and parents). It offers opportunities for independent reading and lifelong learning. From the list, readers are bound to find something that will expand their worldview and help them gain an understanding of the ever-changing world.
There is something for everyone within these lists. Adults new and old will find something to expand their worldview and gain understanding of the ever-changing world we call home. The list is divided into the following five categories:
Arts and Humanities
History and Cultures
Literature and Language Arts
Science and Technology
Social Sciences
