Enthusiastic Book Award Readers!

Students in Grades 4 to 6 at Lawrence School have been reading up a storm as the deadline for voting for favorite books in the Massachusetts Children's Book Award process draws near. Salem State College sponsors this program annually, with 25 titles nominated as candidates for students' favorite book statewide. What will it be? It is hard to tell from the standpoint of our library because many of the books have been circulating a lot; readers are discussing books enthusiastically though they have not yet submitted their votes. Students must read five or more books in order to cast a vote for their single favorite book; the deadline is this Thursday at 3 pm, when we will submit all the votes to the MCBA. You can view last year's winner and this year's list of nominated books! The state winner will be announced later this spring. We'll keep you posted.
