Young Readers Choice Award
Are you always looking for the next good read?
Consider reading the Young Reader's Choice Nominees
and then vote for the one you like best.
YOUR OPINION MATTERS!
Young Reader's Choice Award, given by the Pacific Northwest Library Association, allows 4th through 12th graders in that region to vote for the winner. Unlike most other awards, the nominees have been published three years before the awards, so they are already favorites in the minds of the voters.
Voting takes place between March 15 and April 15 of 2013. That gives you almost a year to read the eight books in your division. (Click here to refer to the list of books.) Challenge yourself! If you are interested, stop in the Library and talk to Mrs. McClain and we will keep track of your reading.
