Every Wednesday, October 7th 2020 - March 3rd 2021

Your child can participate as a judge in this year’s Young Readers’ Choice awards!  There are 15 nominated titles, and we’ll have a preview (or if possible, a full reading) of each book!  Your child may request the book on Overdrive or through our catalog.  If your child has read 3 titles he/she may vote in March for the one she likes the best.  All kids who vote will receive a new gift book from our giveaway stock.

Track the books your child reads using this Elementary coloring map, and send it in when we collect the ballots in March!

We’ll post a new nominated title each week (most weeks – check calendar to be sure).  If you register we’ll send you a Zoom link so you can participate in the reading and discuss afterwards.  Some books may have interesting extension activities!
