Best Books are nominated by KCLS librarians and staff members who, collectively, read thousands of books each year. A selection committee then reviews the submissions and determines the final list. The 156 nominations received this year span a range of genres, from history to fantasy and science fiction.

“KCLS is thrilled to present our 2023 Best Books list," stated KCLS Director of Collection Management Services Tracey Thompson. "We’re pleased to offer the new audiobook category this year, and we hope you enjoy all of these fantastic titles as much as we did!”
