For our librarian partners, here is a list of ADHD books you can use in your BC ADHD Awareness Week book displays. English and Multilingual ADHD titles are listed by dewey decimal number (VPL’s number), author’s last then first name, and title.

The Kerrisdale Libraryone of the 20 Vancouver Public Libraries we’re had ADHD awareness books displays at (among the 78 Libraries & bookstores in 23 BC cities who participated in our 2013 BC ADHD Awareness Week activities) sent me this helpful ADHD book list to make it easier for other librarians to find and organize and patrons to check out for ADHD Awareness Week Oct 14-20th.

I and others have added more titles on this list.

They’ve broken down the list by Adult ADHD books, Children and Teens ADHD books, and Multilingual ADHD books.

Is your favourite ADHD book missing?  Please let me know in the comments and mention the Dewey Decimal number, then the author’s last name & first name, then title of the book to help other librarians and library patrons find ADHD books not only during ADHD Awareness week but all year long.
