It's been almost two years since Somerville Public Library helped us launch the Awesome Box to public libraries and beyond.

There are now 364 Awesome libraries around the world.

Over 41,000 items have been dropped in an Awesome Box in those libraries. See the items just Awesomed on the Awesome Box page. Now that the year-end lists have come and gone, we'd like to present the top 110 Awesome items* from the past two years.
