Thanks for your question - it's a good one. 

One reason we switched to our current online catalog system because it allows users to make and share lists and rate books much like Amazon or Goodreads.  But in order to get the most out of that system, our lists and ratings get combined with everyone else that uses the system so that as many people as possible are contributing and sharing.

The list you found was actually made by a user with the screen name of tracythelibrarian who is at the Greater Victoria Public Library in Victoria, British Columbia, in Canada.  You can always see who made the list and where they're from by looking on the left side of your screen just under the our logo and the menu bars.

To find selections picked by our own librarians, simply do a list search for "Omaha Picks" and you'll see what we've come up with.  You can also make your own lists and share them with others.

I'll forward your question to our own Childrens Librarians and see if someone can't create a similar list from our own catalog.  You can see the other ones they've created so far here.

Thanks for your question!

Sincerely,
Russ Harper
Library Specialist
